    Hi Shawn, I have no use for Universal Windows Apps. And I dont have a Microsoft account. When I open Store and look for Settings to disable Apps from updating automatically from there, I don't find Settings. I guess the account is needed for having access to Settings from within Store?

    So, despite not using a MS account, can I use Option 3, Steps 4 and 3 to turn Off or back On Apps automatic updates?

    I uninstalled all Apps that Microsoft "don't mind" we uninstall but left the rest alone. I can ignore them but would love to stop their updates. I can tell when they are updating, and see errors (number 37) in Windows Events Log that the updates generates. Does this error goes away by Turning off Apps updates? And, is disabling Apps from updating automatically going to generate another error in Event Log?

    Thanks

    Bo

    Hello Bo, :)

    Yes, you could use steps 3 and 4 in Option 3 to toggle Store app auto updates on and off if you like.

    However, you should still have a "Settings" option when you click on the user icon in the Store.

    Just to note, these apps (if used) can fail if not kept updated. This would include all the default apps like Photos, Groove Music, Movies & TV, Mail, etc....
