A quick update here. Winaero Tweaker 1.31 is available with two new options. The first one allows disabling the background activity for Store apps in Windows 11, for all apps at once. The other feature allows disabling the SmartScreen for both Edge and Windows on Windows 10+.
Disable Background Apps
Run the app and go to Windows 11 \ Disable Background apps. If you turn on the check box, it will stop all Store apps in Windows 11 from running in the background.
The appropriate option was available in Windows 10 in Settings, but for some reason it wasn't added to Windows 11 Settings (yet?).
Some users find it extremely inconvenient to use Windows Security to disable the SmartScreen feature in Windows 10 and Windows 11, and constantly ask to add such an option to the tweaker app. So I've added in this new version. You'll find it under Behavior > Disable SmartScreen.
