How to find the AUMID (Application User Model ID) of an installed UWP App.

I wrote this article simply because I needed to get the AUMID of an Application needed for kiosk mode setup. Follow the steps discussed below to achieve this.

Example one: Via the GUI (Windows Explorer). Search for run dialog box and type the following to open the Application Explorer
– shell:Appsfolder

This will open the following application explorer window.

Select details on the right hand pane

Access the View menu ALT+V, choose Choose Details
– or use the f10 key to display the view and click choose details

Check the box next to AppUserModelId and press OK

This will display the result below

Note: When you close the Application Explorer, this option is unchecked by default.

Example 2:   Via PowerShell to get the AUMID of an Application.
run the PowerShell script as shown below.

$installedapps = get-AppxPackage

$aumidList = @()
foreach ($app in $installedapps)
{
    foreach ($id in (Get-AppxPackageManifest $app).package.applications.application.id)
    {
        $aumidList += $app.packagefamilyname + "!" + $id
    }
}

$aumidList
