This video describes a feature that allows you to limit new application installations to the Windows store only. This can help protect a computer from viruses and malware.
- [Instructor] In this movie, I want to look at a feature…that allows you to limit installation of applications…to the Windows App Store only.…That would mean that no application could be installed…from a disc or from a download from a website.…For users of Windows 10 S,…this limitation is a standard part of Windows 10 S…and cannot be changed.…But for users of any other version of Windows 10,…you can choose to enable this option…and this feature can be found by going into settings…to the app section…and then to apps and features…and there's this menu up here at the top…for installing apps.…
I can click on that to see the options.…When I describe this feature to people,…a lot of people are surprised.…Why would I ever want to limit…where I'm allowed to install applications from?…Well, the answer is simply a question of security…or to over simplify, virus protection.…Generally speaking, viruses and malware…do not come from apps…that you install from the Windows App Store.…They usually come from applications…you install from other sources…
