    I want to completely remove Gaming settings in Windows settings--or, at least, hide that option.
    Here's my Settings with no Games:

    I followed @Brink's excellent How to Hide or Show Pages from Settings in Windows 10 tutorial... with one difference. I made the changes within HKCU, not HKLM. It was so long ago I cannot remember why.

    So, my REG file to do this was:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "SettingsPageVisibility"="hide:gaming-broadcasting;gaming-gamedvr;gaming-gamebar;gaming-gamemode;gaming-xboxnetworking;"

    Hope this helps...

    Is it possible to remove Gaming Settings in Windows Settings, installed with the latest update? I've already disabled the Game bar.

    I know this is a little outdated, but for anyone looking for this information now, the solution is below. And for the record, when I did this, I had already disabled the xbox apps that show in the Start menu through Powershell - this is separate from that.

    Go into registry.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    Right click in the right-hand pane; New; String value. Name it SettingsPageVisibility
    Double click the new string value and enter:
    Hide:URI;URI;URI Replace URI of course with the actual URIs, separated by semicolons. Perhaps not everybody's will have the same options, so here's mine as an example...

    Hide:gaming-gamebar;gaming-gamedvr;gaming-broadcasting;gaming-gamemode;gaming-xboxnetworking

    Once you have all the options in your Gaming settings hidden, Gaming itself will disappear.

    Umm... the solution was posted two-and-a-half years ago.
