Remove pinned Server Manager Icon from Start Menu for new Users on Server 2016

7. September 2017

If you plan to deploy a Server 2016 e.g. as an RDSH or XenApp VDA you might want to remove the pinned Server Manager from the Start Menu for new users. I don’t know why, but Microsoft does not offer a GPO setting for this. This blog post from Clint Boessen describes how to remove the pinned Server Manager Icon from Server 2012. For Server 2016 the Shortcut that needs to be removed is in a different Path:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

After deleting the shortcut new users don’t get a pinned Server Manager in their Start Menu. It is not necessary to remove the shortcut from the following path:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Windows Administrative Tools
