  • Nothing using built in functionality. You can use a group policy, script, or configuration item to either delete the shortcut or change permissions on the shortcut or exe if you are dead set on users not being able to access it.

    What functionality do you want to specifically prevent a user from having access to though?

  • Hi,

    Many thanks for your post and all the efforts so far.

    Based on my experience, you could use software restriction policy to limit the applications that the users can run. 

    You could take a look at this article: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh994606(v=ws.11).aspx .

    Best Regards,

  • Hi,

    If you want to remove it you can use the ExcludeFeatures switch with Ccmsetup when installing the SCCM client. /ExcludeFeatures:ClientUI

  • But this will only remove icon and if someone search using software center then some one can still open.

    So we want that even user should not able to open also or soft center should not get installed when sccm agent is installed? Is that possible or can we disable from registry?

  • It should not install software centre. Have you tested completely uninstalling the ConfigMgr client? "CCMSetup.exe /ExcludeFeatures:ClientUI will not install the Software Center on the client."

  • But what in case where agent is already deployed in organization using GP and now when Software centre is present in the system.. what can be done now that it should not be visible/ accessible?
