Windows 10 – Stop PhoneHome or elsewhere

On this page you will find the Information about the Stop Phone Home Powershell Script.

What does the script for you?
It helps to set privacy settings in an automatic way with a simple solution like a Powershell Script.
Some of those settings are also available through GPO, but some are not. The following picture shows the GUI for changing the settings through the “Trusted Windows Store App” Settings (available through the Startmenu):
Settings App

The software Process Monitor from the Sysinternal Tools ( was used to extract the Registry Keys which are modified by the settings app.

How do you use the script
You have to start it with at least one parameter or the script will be terminated:
Script no Parameters

To see all Parameters with an short explanation, just use the get-help cmdlet, insert the script and add “-detailed”:
get-help script

The script determines if it is running with local administrator permissions, if those are not available, the script will not execute the machine settings, even if those parameters are used.

Where do you find the most recent release
In future, I will always update this post, and add the new Script here:
