[New-bugs-announce] [issue39251] outdated windows store links in WindowsApps folder

New submission from Brian McKim <bpmckim at gmail.com>:

When I uninstalled the windows store version 3.8 it appears to have placed two links in my \AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps folder (though they may have always been there), python.exe and python3.exe. When I run these in PowerShell both send me to the 3.7 version in the store. There is a note on the page stating this version is not guaranteed to be stable and points them to the 3.8 version. As these are to make the install as painless as possible these should point to the most stable version; 3.8 in the store.
