Unable to move Netflix app in apps and features, move button is greyed out.

I'm trying to move the Windows app Netflix to my second hard drive because the app doesn't have a download location drop down. How do I do it, and why is it grayed out? (Same deal with modification)

***Modified Title from: The “move” buttons in apps and features is greyed out***
