5.39 Ensure 'Windows PushToInstall Service (PushToInstall)' is set to 'Disabled'

Information

This service manages Apps that are pushed to the device from the Microsoft Store App running on other devices or the web.

The recommended state for this setting is: Disabled.

Rationale:

In a high security managed environment, application installations should be managed centrally by IT staff, not by end users.

Impact:

Users will not be able to push Apps to this device from the Microsoft Store running on other devices or the web.

Solution

To establish the recommended configuration via GP, set the following UI path to: Disabled.

Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\System Services\Windows PushToInstall Service (PushToInstall)

Default Value:

Manual (Trigger Start)
