You may be surprised to learn that the tool you see in the image here is actually written in PowerShell. The tool source code and latest build as an MSIX package is available on GitHub - MSIX Commander.

The tool seems to be most useful during the smoke test phase when testing new packages. Using the tool, you have an easy button to access the hidden installed assets, such as the manifest or config.json files. And, you can also work with certificates, deployments, and simple edits and debugging.
