    Hello @SM03,

    That is normal. Regsitry entries for group policies do not get added until the policy is applied.

    I'm currently not aware of a registry setting to turn on/off for specific apps via Settings.

    I assume these apps will continue to be updated on the Store after being disabled.

    Oh yes, apps will be always still be updated, but you can turn on/off automatic updates via Store settings.

    What if I made a backup for those regkeys & applied later with Win ISO?
    & you didn't reply to my first Q, why that regkey of op 6 cannot be found in v19h1?

    @SM03,

    I did answer your question. Registry entries for group policies like in op 6 do not get added until the policy is configured (set).

    Sure, you can back up all these registry keys and values and apply them when you want to set them. It'll be the same as doing option 6.

    Thanks, I'll try that out. Meanwhile

    Anyone knows from where & how to find /view the windows 10 installed apps 'Package family name" to configure this following section in GPE?

    You can use the command below in PowerShell to create a file on your desktop with a list of "Package Family Name" for all installed Store apps.

    Get-AppxPackage | Select PackageFamilyName >"$env:userprofile\Desktop\Apps_List.txt"

    Now can you tell me how to configure that GPE section that I marked in the earlier screenshotted pic to get this configuration i.e. only running MS Store, Settings & Weather like this?
