Windows 10 – GPOs – Getting Rid of Consumer Apps

So, you finally got rid of undesired apps that you don’t want on your base/gold image but after that you find your with a bunch of other apps that you don’t know where they came from?

Basically this is a “functionality” on Windows 10 that automatically downloads some consumer apps.

To get rid of these ones follow this steps:

  1. Open GPMC
  2. Edit your GPO
  3. Navigate to Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components| Cloud Content
  4. Double-click “Turn off Microsoft consumer experiences"
  5. Select “Enabled

And you’re done!

    1. Yes, unfortunately there's no GPO for Windows 10 Pro :(
