Hello again!

Just checking if there was any development on the Windows App front since the original post...

How about Launching Windows Apps (Edge, etc)? Will it be in V3 or will it make it to FARR before that? Mouser, you said like 6 months ago that this feature was coming in soon. :-)

Thanks Mouser! :-)

Find And Run Robot / Launching Windows Apps
« on: March 28, 2017, 10:17 AM »

I was wondering if there's a way to launch the so called Windows apps (Edge, the new (Windows 10) Calculator, Clock, etc) from FARR (see this list I got. Note that I'm using Classic Shell, thus the look of my start menu):

I tried adding C:\Program Files\WindowsApps and C:\Windows\SystemApps to the search folders, but it didn't work. As I found checking the running exe proprieties in process explorer, these apps appear to require some -ServerName parameter to be passed in for the app to run

Edge params:

Time params:

So, if there's no actual way for FARR to do that as of now, is this a feature we could expect in the near future?

I have a very real feeling that most the new and funky "Apps" are the same.
Searching with Everything, I can find that Calculator, Camera, Calendar, etc appear to live in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps under very weird paths:

Weirder yet, I can't manage to get access to this path which appears to be restricted.
In any case... Back to the original question: The new Apps are not accessible from FARR. Are there any plans to remedy to that?
