Do not sync Apps


Prevent the "AppSync" group from syncing to and from this PC. This turns off and disables the "AppSync" group on the "sync your settings" page in PC settings.

If you enable this policy setting, the "AppSync" group will not be synced.

Use the option "Allow users to turn app syncing on" so that syncing it turned off by default but not disabled.

If you do not set or disable this setting, syncing of the "AppSync" group is on by default and configurable by the user.

Supported on: At least Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1
