    Remove user interface options like Shutdown and

    My Grandma has Alzheimer's and pokes around way too much in her computer that has Windows 10 I used to remove all kinds of things in Windows 7 but since upgrading to windows 10 I all the things I had setup to no longer show are now back again after update. The things I would like removed are...

    The power menu when you click Start (I use a CLI command in the Run Box to restart and shutdown)
    The Network Icon in the task tray
    The Volume Icon in the task tray
    Any visible access to control panel (I use Windows+R to bring up run and enter "control")

    I apologize for my lack of knowledge and hope that someone can help me with this if I am gone for a few hours the system gets shutdown and she cant use her games any more for the duration of my absence.

    If you like, you could use the tutorial below to prevent your Grandma's account from being able to use the shutdown options.
