Is there a way to hide / not show "administrative tools" on Start Menu in non-Domain environment? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working to publish applications that will be accessible through Remote Desktop Services on Windows Server 2008 R2 virtual machine. I'm in a workgroup/non-Domain environment and using local security policies have locked down the server to a point that I'm almost ready to have users test it out. But, I can not seem to hide "Administrative Tools" from the Start menu. 

    So far, I've removed the "Administrative Tools" folder from the directory C:\Program Data\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs, so when a non-administrative user access it on the Start Menu, they don't see anything, it is "empty". This will do for now, but I much rather have it not be seen at all.

    Any insight on this would be appreciated 

    Thank you in advance
