I’m not advocating that all Store Apps are terrible and that you shouldn’t use them. I just don’t think it should be useful in a working environment and I really don’t want my users browsing the store downloading the latest FaceBook or Twitter metro app. There are other methods in doing this, but I like how the registry handles this task.
*note – copy and paste the code below into notepad and save it as a *.reg file.
