Windows 10 Hiding Admin Tools on Start Menu (GPO)
04/29/2016 7391 views
We are tweaking the GPO's for our first bulk release of Win 10 to the organization. We would like to hide the Admin Tools (In the All Apps list) from the general users without having to delete this from the ProgramData folder.
In previous versions of Windows one could set a registry gpo with the value StartMenuAdminTools to 0 located in HKCU\Software\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\ or Add Microsoft.Administrative Tools to the Hide specified Control Panel Items gpo and it would hide it from both the Control Panel and Start Menu. In Win10 this does not seem to work.
Does one know how to get this out of the start menu without removing the folder/files from the ProgramData folder or creating a start menu layout?
Any help appreciated.
