You will get the User tile menu appearing at the top left corner of Windows 10 Start Menu. These tiles are pretty much customizable in a lot of ways. For instance, right-clicking a tile gives you options to pin or unpin it, change its size, and turn live tile on/off etc.
However, Imagine a situation where you arrange all the tiles and some one rearranges or deletes some tiles (maybe on a multi-user computer or childrens…)
Is there a way to prevent users unpinning tiles (apps/programs) from Start Menu? Yes. You need to lock the Start Menu layout in order to restrict users from customizing or altering it.
