    Anyone know how to Disable specific 'Background Apps' via Registry..?


    Can anyone explain how to disable specific Windows 10 'Background Apps' (such as 3D Viewer, Your Phone, etc.) via the Registry?

    I know there is a Registry edit to disable them ALL, but are there specific Keys you can add to disable specific, individual apps?

    For clarity's sake, I'm referring to the apps found in:

    Settings > Privacy > Background Apps

    This would be a very useful set of commands to have available.

    Much appreciated, as always.



    EDIT: Here is how to disable ALL Background Apps simultaneously:

    Turn On or Off Background Apps in Windows 10

    (I'm looking for a way to disable only specific, individual Background Apps)

    :)

  2. Apps Still Running in Background

    Hi,

    There are several options on how to disable background apps. Since you already disable it on the privacy settings and the issue still persists, we recommend that you disable it through registry. However, modifying the registry can have serious consequences
    that can prevent the system from booting.

    We suggest following the steps provided by Rick_Li on TechNet
    forum
    . It contains instructions on how to modify the registry to disable background apps.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Apps running in Background

    Hi JonBlann,

    Windows 10 allows some apps to run in the background even if you never open it. This would let the applications to update itself or to get you notified with what's new with the app. However, this would consume most of your battery, bandwidth, and system
    resources.

    You can refer to the steps below on how to disable apps from running in the background:

    1. Go to Settings > Privacy > Background apps.
    2. Under Background apps, toggle off the Let apps run in the background switch to disable all apps that come from Microsoft Store. If you want to disable only a specific app, then you can toggle off the switch next to the
      app under Choose which app can run in the background.

    Let us know how it goes and we'll assist you further if needed.
