    Windows 10 Sets - disable completely?


    Hi all - my PC has not yet received this update, but I have a friend who has and dislikes it a lot. I am pretty sure I am really going to dislike it as well (call me old-school).

    I know from the tutorial here that there is a way to disable it BY APP, but if I don't want to use it at all, is there a way to disable it on ALL APPS rather than having to go through and turn it off on every single app one by one...? Thanks in advance!

    Hello Darkstrike,

    You could use an option in the tutorial below to completely disable Sets.

    Hi Brink - thanks for the response - he hasn't tried these yet, but I was under the impression these were only for the preview build Sets was part of, but didn't work on the release build?

    Correct, what I posted is only available starting with build 17666.

    Sets is only available to some in the "Skip Ahead" builds by default though.

    Hi Brink - sorry, I don't really follow the builds other than what Windows Update offers me...what do you mean by the 'skip ahead' builds?

    That's ok. "Skip Ahead" is part of the Fast ring for Windows Insider builds.

    You can just check to see what build is installed. If it's build 17666 or later, you'll be able to use what I posted above to disable Sets.
