    Hi,

    Have you tried manually removing it?

    Steps:

    Click Start followed by Settings

    Under Settings choose Personalisation

    Under Personalisation, select Start from the Menu on the left hand side

    At the bottom should be a blue link saying "Choose Which Folders Appear on Start" > Select this (see below)

    Under this menu you should see that Settings is enabled by default, simple disable it

    Let me know how you get on

    Thanks

    Yes, but it removes it only from the "sidebar" in Start Menu, not the Application list.

    Have you tried using gpedit.msc and configuring it that way?

    Under User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar

    Here you should be able to configure the settings app and disable it from showing on the pane as well as the application list

    Thanks

    Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs and you should find it there then delete it but save a copy of the shortcut in case you want it back
