I'm trying to assign Paint to one of the macro keys on my keyboard and can't find the location of the actual file anywhere. Does anyone happen to know where it's located in Windows 11?

Thanks.

I had forgotten to have hidden items shown, so I didn't even see that folder until my question was answered. I appreciate the heads up.

the said folder is protected for users by default, accessing the contents is not allowed unless overriding the permissions :)

but becareful, altering the contents may make the system unstable and re-installing from Windows Store also will be troublesome .. unless re-installing the OS itself, make a copy somewhere before changing / deleting ..
