Where is the WIndows 10 Photos app located in system files?

I'm running Win 10 Pro v1511 build 10586.314

I'm coming to Win 10 from Win 7 so I'm not sure yet of how everything is set up.

I'm looking for the install folder for the Windows 10 "Photos" app. It's this one:

I'm trying to set some mouse hotkey commands, and in order to do that I need to direct my Logitech software to the app location, or even a shortcut location would do. Where is it installed to?




HI Sal,

All the applications that are installed through the Store are physically stored in the folder %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps, which usually is C:\Program Files\WindowsApps.

Since this are Store apps you cannot set shortcut key from your keyboard. You can only create shortcut keys for the Desktop apps.
