FYI: This may be news to some people.  Many may find it appealing.

The display style* is YOUR call.  But, one can have ALL Apps in an explorer window.  And ALL exposed, nothing insider folders.  Rt Clk on items includes, Pin to taskbar. *An example...

Is this the shell:AppsFolder command or is it something new, related to Edge Chromium?

@tomscharbach That is very much the shell:AppsFolder window.

@Sunburst 

Yes, indeed.  Not new to or peculiar to Edge C.  No less worth sharing & may not be as familiar to some people.

Good job recognizing it, though :thumbs_up::thumbs_up:  It's not a 'common knowledge' thing, usually.

Cheers,
Drew

@Drew1903   Thanks.   I was wondering whether Edge Chromium was involved. 

 

A question of curiosity:  How often do you use shell:AppsFolder and why? 

 

My use is very limited -- capture/print a full apps list as part of preparation for a clean Windows install on someone else's computer.  I doubt that I use it more than once or twice a year. 

 

Is the shell:AppsFolder command something you use frequently or think that people would use if it didn't require a command to open?  If so, maybe you should suggest in the W10 Insider forums that this is something Microsoft should consider making more accessible to ordinary users in the fall build.
