    "Background Apps" do not remain OFF (1803 x64 Pro)


    I've clean installed 1803 x64 Pro, 4 times (last was official), with the same result:
    on Settings/Privacy-->Background Apps are always ON, after a logout, shutdown or restart.

    Only using "gpedit", "Background Apps" remain OFF (or it seems so).

    Also, there is a mess on the background apps list...appearing and disappearing...

    P S: I think, this happens only in Pro edition.

    Hi werby.

    Please check out this post in the Windows 10 April 2018 update thread.

    Seems this is a known problem and if I'm reading right we get a fix on May 8th.

    Who knows maybe sooner if the volume exceeds bearable limits. ( and as we know MS can bear a lot.)

    Windows 10 April 2018 Update now available Monday, April 30
