Installed fonts from Microsoft Store are red dot marked

Using MainType 8.0 Pro
Just tested to install a font family from "Microsoft Store"... I get the font in the MainType list for installed fonts but marked with a red dot in front?
The font appears in all the software that I use; Adobe suite, LibreOffice etc etc...
But it doesn't appear in the Windows standard Catalogue for fonts? I get no additional info for the font in MainType? I can export the font from MainType and get a "OTF" font out of it... In this way I can make my webfonts; ttf, woff and woff2. And then have to install the ttf in MainType to get it to work in my Webdesigner software...
A kind of a work-around... any thoughts how to handle these fonts? Anyone know where the font is physically installed in the OS?

Sorry... saw the other threads about this now... but can't figure out where the fonts are installed from the Microsoft Store?

If you upgrade to MainType 9.0 that should solve this problem if I have understand the replies in the linked thread correctly.
