Disable Microsoft Consumer Experiences

The latest Windows 10 feature upgrade includes a new feature that automatically installs a few apps from the Windows Store. Some apps like Candy Crush and Minecraft gets installed, we don’t think that belong to a work environment so we’ll delete it.

The good news is that it’s quite simple to disable. You need to disable a function called Microsoft Consumer Experiences. We will do this using a registry modification :

Create a new ConsumerExperience folder in your Windows 10 customization directory
Create a new DisableConsumerExperience.reg file and copy the following code :


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CloudContent] “DisableWindowsConsumerFeatures”=dword:00000001

You’ll end up with the following structure :

Open the SCCM Console and browse to Packages
Right-click your Windows 10 Customization package and select Update Distribution Point

Go to Software Library \ Operating Systems \ Task Sequences
Right-click and Edit your Windows 10 task sequence
Select Add / General / Run Command Line
Name : Disable Consumer Experience
Command line : Regedit.exe /s ConsumerExperience\DisableConsumerExperience.reg
Check the Package box and specify your Windows 10 customization package
Position this step after the Windows image has been deployed
