    You can allow users to only use apps from the Store on the Windows 10 Creators Update, and in this guide, we show you how to do it.
    On the Windows 10 Creators Update, Microsoft is introducing a slew of new features and changes. One of these new additions is the ability to have more granular control over the kind of apps you install on your PC.

    By default, you can download and install apps from anywhere, but the caveat is that getting apps from unknown sources can harm your computer and negatively impact the user experience. Starting with version 1703, Windows 10 introduces an option to block users from installing apps, including traditional (win32) apps, from being installed on your device outside the Windows Store.
    Because apps published in the Store have been verified by Microsoft to ensure they don't include malicious code, and they work as advertised, using this new option can help you to keep your computer a little more protected and performing as expected. It's an ideal feature for less experienced PC users or youngsters.
    In this Windows 10 guide, you'll learn the steps to block users from installing traditional desktop apps, and only allowing them to get apps from the Windows Store.
