....... I'm not sure if this is a bug or me doing something wrong.

Anyway, I installed MusicBee Windows 10 App to give it a try and ran into the following issues:

1st Issue:

Unable to create Toolbar Icons, because the Icons folder needs to be placed in the MusicBee installation folder which is impossible because of folder permissions in the %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps folder.

Even tried with changing permissions to my admin account which allows me to see the folder contents of the win32 folder which is as far as understand the MusicBee Windows 10 installation folder inside ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps, but I'm not not allowed to create a new folder in there.

2nd Issue:

Same as  the 1st issue above while trying to paste the neroAacEnc.exe into the Codec folder.

All my other saved settings and preferences I could manage in the ...\AppData\Local\Packages\50072StevenMayall.MusicBee_kcr266et74avj folder except the Toolbar Icons and the Codec.

If it's not a bug, please let me know what I'm doing wrong .......

windows fully isolates windows store applications.
for the first issue, just save the icon into any writeable folder and select the icon from that folder
for the second issue, you can place the encoder in any writeable folder and set the path in the File Converters preferences window

....... alright, thanks.

I've got the codec issue solved, apparently I was missing something as I tried your suggestion before.

For the Toolbar Icons it won't work because if I try to enter a path by clicking on the 3 dots right to the form field I get the popup message like shown in this Screenshot.

Also tried to enter the path manually by typing it in or copy and paste, but it won't work.

Is it possible to include the Toolbar Icons in a custom skin.xml ? - I posted this question in the developers forum section already but didn't get a reply.

Thanks again .......

if you are having problems using the windows file open dialog then this isnt the right forum. It works fine with the windows store version

Sorry, but I've got the second issue too: In the Windows App I'm not able to select custom toolbar icons.
I must create a folder called "Icons" in the directory of the installation. That's not possible in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps. Selecting another (writable) folder is also not possible at this point (as you can see on Tommy's screenshot). It seems like a little bug to me.

Thanks for the support!

....... right, had the same problem with the toolbar icons.

I guess it's about the Windows 10 folder permissions in %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps, nothing to do with MusicBee .......

Well, like Steven stated:
windows fully isolates windows store applications.
So, it's intended that you don't have the permission to change or add files in this directory.
MusicBee is apparently lacking the option to set another path to the icons. And that's the bug.
