    Just For Fun (Store Closed)


    If you've disabled the MS Store through gpedit you can modify the notice just for kicks!
    Create a .png image of your choice, (in your resolution size), and name it csbg.png then navigate to C:\Windows\WinStore\images and replace the existing file with the new one, (as administrator)

    Click image for larger version

    (Did I mention I was bored!)

    Taking Ownership of and deleting the 'WinStore' folder will do it, but DON'T bother, it breaks a bunch of other stuff.
    Just disable it in gpedit.
