  2. Restrict user access to certain apps in Windows 10

    I have a simple goal, create a local account and limit its rights:

    1. Hide & Secure certain folders/partitions.
    2. Limit access to certain apps.

    For restricting App access, I've only found some tutorials based on editing the registries. Is this the way to go?

  3. Problem in Background app restrictions

    Hello MSFT,

    Some certain apps like WhatsApp are not listed in my "Background apps" under Privacy settings and apps which listed, are not being able to restrict. Those apps are still sending push notifications. A few apps are showing twice or thrice at there

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
