They are in the same place in 20H2 as they were earlier. But the location depends on where you purchased the application. See this FAQ, which also documents the locations:

And you purchased from the Affinity Store, not from the Microsoft Store?

They didn't move for me, and I'm on 20H2 and purchased from the Affinity Store:

MS store. I have 2 systems on 2 drives. The old drive has it there where u said but on New drive with new System its not there

OK; thanks. I suppose it's possible that MS changed the location for MS Store items.

So, you don't have AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Photo\1.0 (Store) at all any more?

Edit: Posts crossed. Interesting. Thanks for the info. @Leigh: FAQ may need an update?
