Win10 Where does Movies & Tv app keep the history?

I have a listing that won't "Remove from List" (movies / tv) pinned start

Some how this one file got corrupted

The directory location of the file has a ZTWITT~1 at the end :(

I can see it's pointing at a User\Downloads\ZTWITT~1

I tried using the file name with a ext mp4 and trick it ..nope :(

I looked in the registry for storing the name...nope :(

I tried using DISM and SFC ... nope :(

I even tired uninstalling installing Movies/TV app thinking it would clear the recent name.. nope :(

There has to be a Movie/Tv file that stores the recently played in Windows Media Player

So, my question is; What directory and what file holds the names ? Please.




Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.


As per your issue, Movies & TV app is a Windows store application. The settings and features are saved only on the main file location. It will not use a different location to save viewed/recent history. It should be saving the recent history on the application’s file location.


However, to know more about the issue, please help us with the screenshot of the issue that you are facing. Follow the steps mentioned in the articleposted by Shawn ‘Cmdr’ Keene on Oct 2, 2015 to post the screenshot.
