    How can Admin turn off Game box for all users.


    We have 14 computers on a domain with over 500 users in an over 55 community. We would like to turn off game box at the admin level so none of the users see the game box pop up. This tutorial only turns it off by individual user.
    Can anyone help?

    1. Open Settings, and click/tap on the Gaming icon.
    What Gaming icon? - Gone in build 1607 at least.

    1. Open the Xbox app.
    2. Click/tap on the Settings icon on the left, click/tap on Game DVR at the top
    Now Settings is at the very bottom, you must locate the nearly invisible scrollbar to expose it.

    Am I the only one annoyed at having full Programs now called "apps" as if they were coded by teenagers for $0.99 download?
