Starting Windows Apps with Grid 3

Both Windows 8 and Windows 10 include apps ( e.g. calculator, camera, maps, mail).

Apps work differently to programmes, so cannot be launched from Grid 3 using a Start program command on its own.

We have created this Windows App Launcher grid set, which you can copy cells from to add into your own grid sets.

You will see that these cells use the Start program command alongside WindowsPowerShell and the relevant app code (see table below).
