    GPOs to Disable Account Settings are not working


    Hello,

    I need to disable the below settings. I have tried using the below GPO settings, ran gpupdate /force and restarted 2 domain computers. I then logged into each computer with a different domain account. The live tiles were still changing. I am still able to add a PIN to the account. I was still able to add a Microsoft account. (I do not have a Work/School account but the option was still available. I added the same Microsoft account to both domain users. The Sync your settings is all grayed out and all set to off. However, I noticed the desktop background synced and the Favorites Synced. How do I disable all these settings so they cannot be used and are turned off?

    Disable Live Tiles
    Disable Settings - Accounts - Sing-in Options - Create a PIN
    Disable Settings - Accounts - Your account - Add Microsoft account
    Disable Settings - Accounts - Your account - Add a work or school account
    Disable Settings - Accounts - Sync your Settings


    Disable Live Tiles

    GPO - Computer Configuration/Policies/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Options
    Accounts: Block Micorosoft Accounts Setting: User's can't add or log on with Microsoft Accounts

    GPO - Computer Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/App runtime

    Disable Settings - Accounts - Your account - Add a work or school account
    GPO - Computer Configuration/Policies/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Microsoft Passport for Work

    Where did you find a GPO template for Windows 10?

    I find templates uneasy to use, would not you be more comfortable with direct GPO commands like:

    reg add "HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PushNotifications" /v "NoTileApplicationNotification" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f

    A GPO does set registry settings. I verified the GPOs are applied by checking the registry entries. The problem is the reg entries are not disabling the settings.

    Could the problem be related to an incorrect WMI Filter? It appears Windows 10 WMI is formatted different than previous releases of Windows. That said, I haven't found a definitive post of how to create a working Windows 10 WMI Filter.

    As a work around I used reg keys in GP
    Disable MS Accounts
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Settings\AllowYourAccount]"value"=dword:00000000
    Disable PIN sign on
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Settings\AllowSignInOptions]"value"=dword:00000000
