Cmdlet to return list of running Windows Store (Metro) apps? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a cmdlet that returns a list of running Windows Store apps? I've looked through the get-process parameters and properties but didn't find anything.

    Thanks. That cmdlet returns *installed* Windows Store apps, I was looking for *running* Windows Store apps.

    Also to clarify my original comment, get-process does include running Windows Store apps; I'm looking for a way to either filter the get-process output to just Windows Store apps, or a seperate cmdlet that shows only Windows Store apps.
