Prevent installing Candy Crush, Twitter and other apps from Windows 10

Hello,

One of my customers was noticing what at first seemed weird problem - unwanted apps like Twitter and Candy Crush appear on Windows 10 soon after the OS was installed.

This actually is a feature by design from Microsoft, and if you want to turn it of, you should use this group policy value:
Computer Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> Windows Components –> Cloud Content” called “Turn off Microsoft consumer experiences”: Enabled
