    And for those of us that don't want to blindly install an app that is "supposed" to be an update, yet breaks some functionality... we can wait and read the reviews from those like you before taking the plunge. Thanks! :-)
    We are talking updates, not new Apps.

    Nothing I unpinned came back. Of the live tiles I keep only News, Weather and Maps. Actually I'd rather have an option to uninstall updates than to stop them, if I could choose that is.

    No way to do that for an app. That would be the same as uninstalling an update to a desktop program such as Ccleaner, it can't be done. You can uninstall and install an older version and turn updates off in the program though. Maybe if the store had an app graveyard with older versions

    The majority of apps can be removed and later replaced if need. Below are the only apps I have installed
