Removing Icons from Start>Settings

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was curious if anyone has ever tried removing icons from Start>Settings. I want to be able to hide some of the icons from my end users.

Thanks,

Jenya

By 'icons' you are referring to LNKs (Start Menu shortcut) ? You can do it via XML setup file. Below code will delete 'Pocket MSN.lnk':

<wap-provisioningdoc> 

<characteristic type="FileOperation"> 

<characteristic type="%CE2%\Start Menu\Programs\Pocket MSN.lnk" 

translation="install"> 

<characteristic type="Delete"> 

<parm name="ForceDelete"/> 

</characteristic> 

</characteristic> 

</characteristic> 

</wap-provisioningdoc>

I think OP was talking about removing the icons from the Settings menu, and I just had a look in the Settings folder in Windows\Start Menu\ and it's empty. Going by the way it uses tabs, would it be an application?
