Windows 10 Cloud to allow win32 apps only from Windows Store

Posted March 01, 2017

The latest bug Bash, held in February, was aimed at assessing what is thought to be a feature-complete version of the Creators Update that will make its way to production users - and Microsoft has provided a behind-the-scenes look into how Bug Bashes are organized and managed. The new feature in build 15042 can be accessed on the Settings tab's "Apps & features" option, under "Installing apps". MSPU reports that the latest Windows Insider preview build of Windows 10 Creators Update includes "a new feature which will allow Windows 10 users to only install apps from the Windows Store".

Qualcomm explains that while cellular PCs will be able to run full Win32 apps, they won't provide the gaming performance that you find on a high-end desktop, and they will be primarily focused on browsing and working with documents. Unsandboxed Win32 apps are the main source of viruses and malware on Windows 10.

This "bloatware" is often an issue for users booting up a new device for the first time, who discover that they are unable to install all their desired apps and programs due to a lack of storage space.

Eric Greitens, the state's first Jewish governor, called the vandalism "cowardly" and "a pitiful act of ugliness". The damage comes less than a week after a Jewish cemetery in suburban St.

Microsoft is expected to release the Windows 10 Creators Update in April. European Union data protection authorities recently said they were "concerned" about the data collection practices built into Windows 10. Put in its most restrictive third position, this setting will block the installation of traditional Win32 applications; only those shipped through the Store using the Project Centennial technology will work.

So in order to activate this new mode just go to Windows Settings Update & security For developers and turn on Developer Mode. According to Windows Central, these options will be turned off by default on Windows 10 editions that are not Windows 10 Cloud.

With Windows 10 on ARM, Microsoft and Qualcomm are trying to offer a more compelling feature package as part of a concept described as "cellular PCs".
