Thank you for this post, Shawn

One way to get the App GUID (used in winget command) for Microsoft store app, :
o open MSFT Store in BROWSER: Microsoft Store
o Search all applications (box near top-left) e.g., ClipChamp
o extract GUID from retrieved URL: https://apps.microsoft.com/store/detail/clipchamp-video-editor/9P1J8S7CCWWT?hl=en-us&gl=us

Then use winget as noted above e.g., winget install 9P1J8S7CCWWT

Great tutorial, but I probably won't be using it.

I only use/have four of the things on that list.
Paint, Notepad, Clock and Calculator. :-)

I kilt all the rest of those things. :D
