    How to manage settings of Store Apps?

    We would like to set up some shared workstations to just run the Remote Desktop store app.

    The system would be set up like a kiosk, so the user never long into the local Windows account. It logs in with a generic account without admin rights.
    For this to work, we need to disable two settings on either the entire workstation or at least the user profile used for this.

    1. Disable the option for the user to save their RDP credentials in this app. Some users may click the check box that says "Remember my credentials" out of habit. We need this to not be possible so that the next person doesn't have access to their saved remote login credentials.

    2. Disable the option to show thumbnails of recent connections. The thumbnails of previous connections will be clutter on a shared system and a potential privacy and security risk.

    Can these settings be controlled through the registry, PowerShell or a group policy?
