Launching Windows Apps

Hello.

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):
Launching Windows Apps

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:
Launching Windows Apps

Time params:
Launching Windows Apps

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?

Thanks,

joce.

i think this is already on mouser's list of new feature requests

i personally use autohotkey scripts for every app i want :

Run Skype://

Run fb-messenger://
--- End quote ---

Run calculator://
--- End quote ---

Skype://, fb-messenger://, calculator:// are registered protocols in windows...

you can also use the run built-in command like so (directly in FARR search box) :
run calculator://

mouser:
Yeah I will add this asap -- moving to top of my todo list.
