    If you've ever wanted to turn off Windows Store (like me), here's a quick solution on how to do it:

    1. Press the [Windows-Logo] + [R] key combination to bring up the run dialog box, type:

    Code:
    gpedit.msc
    and press ENTER.

    2. In the Window expand in the tree view "User Configuration","Administrative Templates","Windows Components", and then "Store"

    3. You should see the option"Turn off the Store application", double click on it.

    4. Switch the radio button from "Not Configured" to "Enabled" to enable the Windows feature "Turn off the Store application"

    5. Reboot the PC. This is to ensure all changes take effect.
