Why can't I get the location information for the app: "Movies & tv"  in Windows 10 within task manager when I right click and select find file location this comes up with many security errors even when task manager is run as Administrator?

Why??

Wouldn't be the only bug in 10.

Robert, this issue happens for me, too, and I looked at different angles, I started task scheduler elevated or as system account (psexec -s -i taskmgr.exe). The latter 2 cases, when trying to get the location, nothing even happened, no error message, no explorer window. So this might be what I suppose it to be, a bug.

I was in waiting for others to comment, so please don't be that strict with my comment.

Sorry - I just meant the comment was not very constructive that was all I meant.
Yes Windows 10 has many bugs but so does Android marshmallows and other Operating Systems.
I just found out that Windows 10 has a latest version   1607 but not always  obtained via online update automatically.

e.g. I had to go to a Microsoft  download site to get the Windows 10 1607 version to download and install  - Microsoft not straight forward!!!

This basically waiting on a valid response like - I understand this is the way things in windows 10 build 1607 should be security wise
or
No this a logged bug in windows 10 pro build 1607 and if applicable all windows 10 builds

As I confirmed it, it is no defect on your system.
As I tried it with the system account and no error message at all came, it is definitely badly programmed if not even a bug. In any case, you cannot do anything about it but to report it to microsoft. Use the feedback tool and/or the technet forums like https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=win10itprogeneral
