  1. Hi, everyone. I am trying to run a batch file after a Windows Store app ends in Launchbox or Big Box. Specifically, I want to kill an exe that I start before running the Windows App after I'm done. I have verified that the batch file works on its own, and the exe starts properly before the app launches, but Launchbox doesn't seem to detect that I have quit out of the app, so it isn't firing the .bat. I have checked "Automatically Run After Main Application," so I *think* I have set everything up correctly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
  2. I've seen a few questions asked lately about how to import Windows 10 Apps from the Microsoft Store so I recorded a short tutorial on what you need to do to import them into Launchbox. It's actually quite simple, but finding and gaining access to the apps folder is the hardest part. I've only tested this in Windows 10 but it should work in Windows 8 as well. Below is the code I show in the video to enter into explorer to find the hidden apps folder. There are other ways to gain access to the apps folder, but this way will leave the original system permissions and ownership of the folder intact as intended by Microsoft. Here is the original lifehacker web page I took this information from. %windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1} If you wanted to, you could make a shortcut to the apps folder using these instructions. Right click on your Windows 8 or 10 desktop, select "new", then select "Shortcut". Copy and paste the line of text below in the "Type Location of the Item" text field and select "Next". %windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1} Type a name for the shortcut and click "Finish". You now should be able to easily enter the Apps folder via this shortcut. Additionally, an easier way to create shortcuts from Apps per @DOS76 "use win+s to pull up the search from there you can type the name of a window 10 app and right click it in search and create a shortcut which is only good for adding games one at a time but an easy method to access the games without any code."
