Hello, we would like to stop our students accessing the Windows 10 Store; however, the main system image we use contains Windows 10 Pro.  To restrict access to the Win 10 store you have to have Windows 10 Enterprise installed.   Nice one MS!

So, is there a work-around here, that will enable me to restrict access to the store without having to create a new master image using Win 10 Enterprise edition.  Would save me about a weeks worth of work!

I read, below,  that setting permissions on the object using GPO will prevent users form launching the store.   But, what object is he referring to.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?
