    Start-Process -FilePath ($Env:WinDir + "\explorer.exe") -ArgumentList "shell:Appsfolder\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe!MicrosoftEdge" 

    Start-Sleep -s 4
    Get-Process MicrosoftEdge -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue |
    Where-Object { $_.StartTime -and (Get-Date).AddMinutes(-5) -lt $_.StartTime } |

  • Hello,

    You can not do that with containerized UWP apps. Why you need such functionality? do you research AppService provided by Edge maybe it contains all functionality you need.
