PolicyPak Start Screen & Taskbar Manager lets you place Desktop, Windows Universal and Edge tiles into your desired Start Screen groups and then keeps those groups locked so users cannot work around them.
And if you want to pin (or remove) applications from the Start Menu or Taskbar, it couldn’t be easier.

Benefits and problems solved with Start Screen & Taskbar Manager

The start menu on Windows has evolved with each iteration. With Windows 10 Cortana is becoming more and more a part of the experience and tiles can now be replaced with program lists or other configuration options. The taskbar has also evolved. Not only can you move it, or show/hide the taskbar like before, but with just a right click, users can access windows power shell, computer management, device manager and more – things you might want to turn off based on your user base. Here is a list of videos that show some (but not all) of the power of PolicyPak’s Start Screen & Task Manager.
