The app you're trying to install isn't a microsoft verified app

Set the Installing Apps policy to Anywhere

To change the Installing Apps policy:

  1. Click Start  > Click Settings 
  2. In the Settings window, click Apps
  3. In Apps & Features, change “Choose where to get apps” from The Microsoft Store only (recommended) to Anywhere

 

When you try to install an app or program in Windows 10, you may get the warning “The app you’re trying to install isn’t a Microsoft-verified app“.

Starting with Windows 10 build 15042, Microsoft has added a new setting which allows installing apps from Windows Store only. To get rid of the warning “The app you’re trying to install isn’t a Microsoft-verified app“, here are 3 methods to turn off app recommendations in Windows 10.

Method 1: Turn off App Recommendations via Settings

  1. Click the Start button and then click the gear icon to open the Settings app.

  2. Next, choose the Apps category.

  3. On the right side, click the “Choose where to get apps” drop-down list and change it from “The Microsoft Store only (Recommended)” to “Anywhere“.

  4. Close the Settings app and the warning will be gone away.

If the “Choose where to get apps” drop-down list is grayed out or missing, try to adjust the app installation policy using one of the following methods.

Method 2: Turn off App Recommendations via Group Policy

  1. Open Local Group Policy Editor and browse to: Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Defender SmartScreen -> Explorer.
  2. On the right pane, double-click on the “Configure App Install Control” policy to edit it.

  3. Select Enabled and then pick up the “Turn off app recommendations” setting from the drop-down list.

  4. Click Apply and then OK. Restart your PC and Windows 10 should never prevent you from installing third-party apps or softwares.

Method 3: Turn off App Recommendations via Registry Editor

  1. Open Registry Editor and navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer. Look for a string named AicEnabled on the right pane, then double-click it and change its value from “StoreOnly” to “Anywhere”.

  2. Next, navigate to another key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\SmartScreen. On the right side, double-click the string ConfigureAppInstallControl and change its value from “StoreOnly” to “Anywhere”.

  3. Close Registry Editor and reboot Windows 10 to apply the changes. The warning “The app you’re trying to install isn’t a Microsoft-verified app” will never appear again on the screen while you are installing any third-party software.
