    Be aware that until Microsoft updates the normal users to the latest fast ring build, the oh so nice "all apps on/off" button is missing. You have to turn them off one. at. a. time.

    Thanks, but anyone knows how to turn it OFF or ON using a .cmd file?

    Hello @chok,

    Here are the commands to turn on/off background apps:

    (On)
    Reg Add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\BackgroundAccessApplications /v GlobalUserDisabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    (Off)
    Reg Add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\BackgroundAccessApplications /v GlobalUserDisabled /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
