If you are in charge of a organization environment and don\’t want users messing around some Window Settings options, here\’s how to do it centrally:

  • Open or create a group policy
  • Navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel
  • Find setting called “Settings Page Visibility”
  • Here you can do one of the following:

    • If you want the option to be visible but not accessible use the prefix "showonly:"
    • If you want to completely hide the option, use the prefix "hide:"

    You separate each option with ";". Here\’s a complete list of settings you can add to the policy. just don\’t use the "ms-settings:" part.
