When I download an app from the Store app, where do they go?

I know windows apps are installed in directory "c:\program files\WindowsApps" in windows 10. However Is there any way to list up all windows app installed from only "windows apps store" ? – KJK Jul 4 at 12:47

It depends on your Windows 8 version:

Consumer preview, release preview, and final version:

C:\Program Files\WindowsApps

Developer preview:

C:\Program Files\Applications

However, it is a hidden folder, and if you try to access it, it will be prompted to you a "Access denied" box. I never tested, but this guide says you can unblock it.

It's also in a hidden folder called WindowsApps in the final bits. – Louis Aug 18 '12 at 20:52
Note that you can't copy files from that folder from one Windows 8 install to another. They "won't work". – PJC Nov 7 '12 at 13:24
