  1. How to prevent unwanted Apps from Re-Installing after I Uninstall them?


    As the title says,
    Whenever I uninstall a specific App, it re-downloads itself a few minutes later without my permission, and I sorely wish to not use said app in favor of the internet browser version, which I cannot set to default because Windows 10 does not allow me to, since the browser is not on their approved list of default programs to use for this specific protocol.


    For context, This is the twitter app i'm speaking of, for the default app protocol of clicking on a twitter URL. The OS refuses to let me chose an internet browser, such as edge, to be my default choice for twitter links, and forces the use of the desktop App that outright lacks features the browser version provides.


    Question: How do I stop Windows 10 from downloading an App from the Microsoft App Store without my permission?

    and if possible
    How do I prevent Windows 10 from opening a desktop App when I wish to use the Browser version?

    I am not expecting a legitimate representative from Microsoft to answer this question, as that would mean they'd lose control over yet another thing they wish to make me do. But I AM hoping for other consumers to see this and respond with any solutions they have.

    :)
