You can now hide pages in Windows 10’s Settings app, just as you can hide icons in the Control Panel window. The pages won’t just be hidden in the app itself—there will be no way for users to access the hidden pages. Support for hiding Settings pages was added in Windows 10’s Creators Update.
This allows you to lock down a computer and prevent users from changing certain settings, which is particularly useful on a business network. If you have a Pro or Enterprise edition of Windows 10, you can do this with the Group Policy editor. If you have a Home edition of Windows 10, you can do this by editing the registry.
Whether you use the Registry Editor or Local Group Policy Editor, you’ll need to provide either a hide: value that specifies a list of pages you want to hide, or a showonly: value that specifies only the pages you want to show (all other pages will be hidden).
To create this value, type hide: or showonly: and follow it with as many uniform resource locator names as you like, separating each with a semicolon (;) character.
For example, to hide the Display page, the USB page, and the About page, you’d use:
To show only the About page, you’d use:
If all the pages in a section are hidden, Windows won’t show that section’s icon on the main Settings screen.
Here’s a full list of URIs you can use to specify various Settings pages. You can use these names to launch these pages directly from anywhere in Windows—press Windows+R, type prefix the name with ms-settings:, and press Enter. For example, to launch the About page, you’d type ms-settings:about.
