Microsoft has added a setting to Windows 10 that will let users restrict new software installation to only those apps hosted in the Windows Store.
The option debuted in the latest version of Windows 10 Insider, the preview program which gives participants an early peek at the next feature upgrade as Microsoft builds it. That version, labeled 15042, was released Friday.
With the setting at its most stringent, Windows 10 will block the installation of Win32 software — the traditional legacy applications that continue to make up the vast bulk of the Windows ecosystem — and allow users to install only apps from the Windows Store, Microsoft’s marketplace.
