What is the default PowerApps Studio install location in a Win10 64bit install?

I have installed PowerApps Studio and want to create a shortcut to the *.msi/*.exe, and I can't locate it.

 

Where is the default installation path?

 

Thanks ahead for the insight,

 

SClark

You can achieve the goal of launching the PowerApps Studio from other places by creating a shortcut to "ms-apps://".

Hi @SClark1,

 

In addition to what sarafankit suggested, we could take use of the following way to create Shortcuts for Windows Store Apps under Windows 10:

1.  open the Run dialog (WINKEY + R), type shell:AppsFolder and then click OK to view this folder.

2. Find PowerApps, then right click to choose create Shortcut, there would be a wizard reminding you to put the shortcut to Desktop.

Besides, simply Drag the Apps installed within Windows Store from Start Menu, and then drop it to the place where you would like to create Shortcut would also work.

If you have any further questions, please post back.

PowerApps Studio for Windows is a modern app and does not have a directly .exe you can create shortcut to. You can pin the app to taskbar or start, by right clicking on the app in the Windows start menu.

Thank you for the prompt reply. Does this mean it is not possible to use an absolute or relative path address to create a shortcut or 'favorite,' 'bookmark,' other than within a Windows' UI like the Start menu or Taskbar?

Hi @sarafankit

 

Is it possible to start a specific appid when calling "ms-apps://" via ex. shortcut. like you describe in this conversation?

 

Or how can I start a specific PowerApp on Windows 10 desktop from another program or script?

I have not been able to find the solution else where.

 

Thank you.

 

Best regards, Jan

@JanLektonen- Yes it is possible, use the format 

ms-apps:///providers/Microsoft.PowerApps/apps/<appid>

Thank you very much @sarafankit it works 🙂

 

Is it possible to open the app fullscreen by default? Using a parm?

 

Best regards, Jan

Sadly no, I don't think Windows Store Apps are allowed to do that.
