Changing settings in windows 10

Recommended Posts


In windows 10, there is what I will have to refer to as universal app, with many settings in it, for many things.

I get the feeling these might be able to be changed via some WMI voodoo, but I'm really not sure.

So for example how would I change, say a privacy setting?
