Windows Store Application is a significant app to your Windows 10 PC or Tablet, because it offers the various Store apps, games, music, movies & TV, and books that users can browse through
But, If you’re managing a fleet of computers in a business, you may not want users being able to access everything in the Microsoft Store or If you’re a student computer lab, or even on home computers where not downloading stuff is a matter of stability.
The simplest way to disable the Store was using Group Policy: open the Local Group Policy Editor and go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Store; in the Settings pane on the right, double click Turn off Store application, select Enabled in the properties page for the policy and click OK but Microsoft decided to remove this methode for pro edition users.
