        I have a number of games that I have bought from the Windows Store. The shortcuts for these games are now scattered alphabetically throughout the Windows Start Menu. Is there any way of creating a folder for these games on the Start Menu and then putting the shortcuts in the folder?

          When I followed those instructions the Windows Store Apps weren’t listed.

            Sorry, I missed “Store” (twice!)

            If you create a new folder at;

            %appdata%/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs

            then you should be able to drag/drop or copy/paste Store apps to that from;

            shell:appsfolder

              I have had a quick look at what you have suggested, but will that mean that I will then have two shortcuts for the games (the original plus the one in the new folder)?

              I have now done as you suggested. It did work as I thought it might – giving me two links but at least I now have a folder where I can go straight to a game without a lot of scrolling. Thank you for your help!
