(L2) Ensure 'Turn off Push To Install service' is set to 'Enabled'


This policy setting controls whether users can push Apps to the device from the Microsoft Store App running on other devices or the web.

The recommended state for this setting is: Enabled

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


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

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Push to Install\Turn off Push To Install service

Note: This Group Policy path may not exist by default. It is provided by the Group Policy template PushToInstall.admx/adml that is included with the Microsoft Windows 10 Release 1709 Administrative Templates (or newer).


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