    I had a Netflix shortcut I created that worked on Windows 8.1 and on Windows 10 for a long time, but recently Netflix has been updated and my shortcut stopped working. I was looking into solutions, one of which was to go "%windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1}" and create a shortcut from there, BUT my MS Store Apps are not listed there...

    How to create a shortcut for Netflix now? Why isn't there a MS Store Apps Desktop Shortcut Tools/Utility yet?

    Uninstall the app and install again and drag that to the desktop. Dragging any app to the desktop is the shortcut.

    It's run it in a CMD as admin -%windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1} which is applications.
