Found these notes as well

Built-in Control Scanner You use Built-in Controls Scanner to find command bar names and built-in controls IDs.

This "may" help you identify the setting you need to target.

b) Is there any way to remove the Search item from the start menu? I see that I can pin it to Start, but I don't know how to remove or hide it entirely.

Thanks!


For a), no you can't permission individual values--only keys.
For b) It doesn't appear that the *normal* policy to remove start menu affects the "modern" start menu. But, have you tried disallowing Cortana? It seems to me that the last time I tried that, it had the desired effect.

I just disabled Cortana in Group Policy and it seemed to make no difference at all. Are you sure that you had a different experience?

Well, apparently I was wrong. I just tried it again and, while Cortana was off, search in this way still worked.
