    Spartan executable?

    Where is the Spartan executable that is launched by the icon pinned to the task bar in Windows 10?

    With Spartan running, Open Task Manager, right click "Project Spartan", select "Open File Location".

    Joe, it's rather odd:

    The task manager takes me to "C:\Windows\SystemApps\Spartan_cw5n1h2txyewy\spart an_edge.exe", but the file won't load, while the one pinned to the task bar does fine. But there seems no way to get the properties for the file on the task bar.

    It's so early that it doesn't really matter as yet...I was just sort of curious.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    I'm pretty sure that Spartan.exe is the file executed when you launch Spartan. The others are background processes that get start with Spartan and each tab.

    The only one like that on my "C" drive is C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-spartan_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.10049.0_none_c6d57d7 fbc799b38\spartan.exe.

    Very strange.
