    Turn off SmartScreen Filter in Windows 10

    According to this page:


    Navigate to section :: "To turn off Turn on SmartScreen Filter to check web content (URLs) that Windows Store apps use:"

    I have created a .bat file with the following contents:

    REM Disable "Turn on SmartScreen Filter"
    REG ADD "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppHost\EnableWebContentEvaluation" /V "Enabled" /T REG_DWORD /D "0" /F
    After running the .bat file, I go to Settings > Privacy > General and "Turn on SmartScreen Filter..." is still On.
    Am I doing anything wrong?!

    Hello omidsolo,

    It should be for this below instead.

    SmartScreen Filter for Store Apps - Turn On or Off


    EnableWebContentEvaluation DWORD

    0 = off
    1 = on
    (For .bat file)
    :: Disable "Turn on SmartScreen Filter"
    REG ADD "HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppHost" /V EnableWebContentEvaluation /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F
