I'm using latest MusicBee Microsoft Store version and Windows 10 build 1803. Can anyone tell me how can I copy and paste files into the MusicBee folder located in C:\WindowsApps? Windows never allow me to do that even after I took ownership, got full control of that folder. And I've been trying to do this because I can't add any Theater Mode skin (zip files) in the app (View > Theater Mode > Add skin), there's no error message, the skin just doesn't show up in the Theater Mode skin list

Trying the store version, it works fine

The actual folder for plugin skins:
C:\Users\Steven\AppData\Local\Packages\50072StevenMayall.MusicBee_kcr266et74avj\LocalCache\Roaming\MusicBee\Plugins\TheaterMode.List\...

However the "Add Skin" command only supports the large layout theater mode panels (eg. "Now Playing Panel"),
but not the narrow Now Playing Bar. If its the Now Playing Bar you want the skin for then try creating this folder and manually add the theater mode skin files in:

C:\Users\Steven\AppData\Local\Packages\50072StevenMayall.MusicBee_kcr266et74avj\LocalCache\Roaming\MusicBee\Plugins\TheaterMode.Embeded\...

Thanks to your plugins file location, I found the problem.

When I added theater mode skin through View > Theater Mode > Add Skin, the folder "Plugins" in the .zip file got into the folder "TheaterMode.List". That's why the theater mode skin didn't show up in the list
