    Store apps keep reinstalling


    I am pretty sure I uninstalled most of the store apps after installation some months ago, and have gotten a notification about some nonsense album being created for me few minutes ago. Upon some inspection I realized most if not all of that garbage somehow got reinstalled, presumably with one of the cumulative updates (that's the only way I can think of).
    Is there any way to prevent this?

    It used to be the case these would all reappear after a feature update (upgrade), then MS started respecting users' choices. Could this ceased to be the case again, and have happened after an upgrade? If so, which one?

    I might had been experimenting with or testing some installation scripts and accidentally forgotten to uninstall the garbage. A CU has been installed yesterday and no apps were reinstalled, so I suspect it was a user error after all.

    This is weird, there are no such keys over here.

    That is because the user must create them.

    Ah, ok!
    I hope someone updates it for current version. I mean, I assume some apps added or changed over time.
