    If I setup a computer and enter OOBE (sysprep) setup to install all drivers, then install all the utilities/apps from the Windows store app like the nVIDIa Control Panel, Realtek Audio Console, etc. once I exit OOBE and create a new user account, the user will not have any of those Windows store apps.

    But I see that OEMs have a way of keeping those apps because like on my Alienware laptop, when I created an account, all the Windows store apps that are needed for those drivers to work properly were already installed.

    How do they do this to make the Windows Store apps stick/applied to all users?

    AFAIK you have to sideload them locally through PowerShell. Most DCH driver packages should also include these apps as .appx packages somewhere in the install media...
