    Disable Offline Maps in Windows 10


    is there a GPO or a registry key that can be changed to disable Offline Maps option in System Settings on a Windows 10 machine ?

    Thanks Guys.

    The link and the GUI setting is only to disable automatic download of Maps.

    I am looking for an option(registry/GPO) which can completely gray out the Maps option.

    I've only found a GPO to disable automatic map updates.

    Thank you sir.

    again. this is only to disable automatic updates of Maps.

    This GPO does not gray out the Maps options in settings.

    User can still manually click on download maps and perform the download.

    Thanks for the efforts though.

    That can only be done at the Domain Level with the Enterprise edition. There is no need to gray it out. Disabling it is good enough for anyone.

    Struggling with what? Majority of the stuff that people ask about that falls under Policies that require the computer to be on a Domain, cannot happen with the Pro version. There are reasons why Microsoft sets different limitations between Workgroups and Domains.
