2. Now in the blank space of Run Dialog Window, enter the following or just copy and paste it:

%LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\games\com.mojang\minecraftWorlds
Run Command to Open Folder

3. The above action will take you to the minecraftWorlds folder in the AppData. You will see several randomly named folders, depending on the number of the world you have created in the game. Every folder represents a world. Since I have created only a single world so I can only see only one folder.
