  • Hi Sudhir,

    Create a user control and register that in master page. Follow the below article explaining step by step to implement a user control.

    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kaevans/2011/04/28/user-controls-and-server-controls-in-sharepoint/

    Once you create the user control add it with the below tag:
    <Sharepoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl runat=”server” Permissions=”ManageWeb”>
    Only users with full control permissions will be able to see this content.
    </SharePoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl>

    The list of other permissions are:

    Member name Description
    EmptyMask Has no permissions on the Web site. Not available through the user interface.
    ViewListItems View items in lists, documents in document libraries, and view Web discussion comments.
    AddListItems Add items to lists, add documents to document libraries, and add Web discussion comments.
    EditListItems Edit items in lists, edit documents in document libraries, edit Web discussion comments in documents, and customize Web Part Pages in document libraries.

  • Sudhir,

    As I said if you want to apply it to all the admins you can follow as I said before. Other wise  if not you need to trim the permission further you need to handle that in your user control code.

  • Any reason why you would want to remove this? It's security trimmed and will not give users any additional access to do things they can't or aren't allowed to do. You're making any support members life difficult if they need to troubleshoot issues on the users machine etc. 

    If this is helpful please mark it so. Also if this solved your problem mark as answer.
