Fix: Windows 10 installs various apps and games without asking

So Windows 10 includes a new feature that automatically installs apps from the Windows Store because it wants to promote some of them. Usually, not a problem, but can be of annoyance. Fortunately, there is a quick solution:

  1. Open Registry Editor
  2. Go to
    1. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CloudContent
    2. if the value is not present, you will need to make one
  3. Create a 32-bit DWORD value for the key:
    1. name: DisableWindowsConsumerFeatures
    2. value:1
DisableWindowsConsumerFeatures
DisableWindowsConsumerFeatures

Restart the computer.
