    Preventing access to modern app

    Ive been tasked with preventing the children from accessing instagram. I've got it listed in my windows hosts file and internet options/security/restricted site but the windows 10 app is still allowing access. Any suggestions other then deleting app which can just be reinstalled?

    Not sure on the specifics but running pro you should be able to use gpedit.msc or find a registry tweak online for the Policies folder under HKCU, Microsoft, Windows, Current Version, Policies, Explorer.
