Access to Microsoft Store unblocked after May 12 patch?

Eric M 1 Reputation point

We have access to the Microsoft Windows 10 Store disabled via Group Policy (the app stays installed but you can't load any content when you open it, when working properly) but after deploying the May 12 update for Windows 10 v1903 yesterday, people are able to access the Microsoft store, and have free range to install whatever junk they want. No admins messed with the GPs to enable this. Anyone else experiencing this or just some weirdness unique to our environment?

    As far as I know, there is no related known issues has been offered.

    You may check the following registry value:

    Registry Path:

    Value Name:

    Value Type:REG_DWORD

    Enabled Value 1

    Disabled Value 0

    If the \Windows\WindowsStore directory exists, configure the policy value for Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Store -> "Turn off the Store application" to "Enabled".

    Best Regards,
