  • Did yo link this policy to the correct user account or mitakenly to the computer accounts? Run GPRESULT on the client machine, to check what policies (if any) have been applied.


    We have group policy item called “Prohibit access to the Control Panel”. If you enable this policy setting, you prevent Control.exe from
    starting, it also removes Control Panel from the Start menu, and Windows Explorer.

    You can configure it at: User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\ Prohibit access to the Control Panel

    For more information please refer to following MS articles:

    Group Policy Settings for Control Panel
