    Introduction

    "Settings" in Windows 10 is not denied by Application Manager when configuring a Denied Item Rule for "All Installed Apps" from the Windows Store Items.

     

    Detail

    By default "Settings" is a whitelisted Windows Store App, as such the Denied Item Rule for "All Installed Apps" does not apply.

     

    Solution

    To deny "Settings" in Windows 10, the Window Store App will need to be explicitly configured as a Denied Item Rule using the "Individual App" Windows Store Item and the attached Snippet.
