    until now the only way I could calm down the runtime broker is not to minimizing the groove music app. It just shows up when I use groove music app and if I don't minimize it then no problem but if I minimize the app the runtime broker will eat my cpu frequently. None of the other solutions worked for me.

    I made an account just to share my solution. As others noted, Runtime Broker controls app permissions from many different processes, so everyone is getting different reasons why it is going haywire. For myself, it seems to be when I access folders with thousands of files and then try to use a Microsoft Store App to view or edit them, RB eats up as much as 95% of my CPU. Opening one or two is fine, but if I try to quickly scan through multiple files, whatever process RB is running in the background gets repeated for each item I scan through. I suspect it is adjusting the indexing to those files.

    I can confirm that it does NOT exhibit this behavior with fewer files. I tested with 12 files in a folder. RB took approx. 1.4GB memory on opening the first file, then released it. No matter how many times I opened other files, RB did not consume resources again. So I'm convinced it has something to do with having an extremely large file index, and opening a Microsoft Store App.

    My solution, unfortunately, is to just not use Microsoft Store Apps. Downloading an alternate file viewer that does not rely on RB, I have experienced no problems whatsoever. Obviously this is a workaround and does not actually solve the problem, but the fault seems to be with how MS is handling a large file index, so as long as you're using Microsoft Store Apps with extremely full folders, you're going to have this problem.

    Runtimebroker is a process on windows which determines that the apps we got from window store typically known as metro or Universal apps in windows are properly giving all permission to the app or not , you can read more here.

    I created this account so I can share the answer to the riddle.

    1. Search for “Check for updates” in the Start menu.
    2. Under “Windows Update” choose “Advanced options.”
    3. Under “Choose how updates are installed” click “Choose how updates are delivered.”
    4. Disable the toggle under “Updated from more than one place.”

    It's been sharing updates with the world, using a lot of resources. It was using 40%+ on my brand new dell xps 13 i7.

    Switched it off and bam.

    Edit: It worked initially for me then I launched a twitch app and it went back.
    I don't see the "Choose how updates are installed" option. I am an "Insider", so I may not have that as an option...(?).

    OK, it was under Delivery Optimization, and it was already turned "Off". I toggled it to "On", just to see what would be there, and I seeClick image for larger version.

    Runtime Broker kept thrashing my system, usually using 40% of my CPU although memory use wasn't much, according to the Task Manager. I'm currently using Windows 10 Pro x64 version 10240.

    Runtime Broker is a service called Time Broker, which can be disabled through editing the registry.
    Right-click on the Start Menu Icon. Go to RUN and type regedit.exe and select OK.

    Find the following entry:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] "Start"=dword:00000003

    Change the 3 to a 4.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TimeBroker] "Start"=dword:00000004

    4 is Disabled, 3 is Manual and 2 is Automatic startup.

    Before editing, the original value was 3. Set to 4 to disable. Just change the 3 to a 4 through the MODIFY menu selection, exit regedit and reboot your system.

    After this edit, Runtime Broker no longer runs and the CPU at idle is now only 0 to 1 or 2 percent.

    No adverse affects after disabling Runtime Broker on my system. (ADDITIONAL NOTE: Disabling Runtime Broker will prevent apps from the Microsoft Store from running.)
    This is a super old post, but about a month ago I found it in a search. I noticed the user mentioned no adverse affect to disabling the runtime broker, I have found in win10 if you disable runtime broker you are no longer able to use task scheduler. It might be conflicting with other settings on my pcs, but I dont think so. And there is a chance when this was originally written it didnt affect task scheduler that way, but now, for sure it is causing task scheduler to fail.
