    If the computers are on the Domain and the Users are in Active Directory, you can restrict access to Settings, make changes, install Software etc They would need the Administrator Password.
    You can also use the Group Policy Editor How to Block Access to Windows 10 Settings and Control Panel

    what i want to do here is to prevent any user from accessing safe mode at all
    i discovered that users at my domain tend to use shift+restart to enter recovery environment and then startup settings and from there safe mode

    reagentc /disable will move the WinRE from the Recovery partition to the C: partition
    Disable won't prevent entering recovery environment.
