Is it possible to lock down or restrict access to the "All Apps" button in Windows 8 for non-admin users?

Or is there a way to restrict the number of apps that appear?

You could put App Restrictions in Windows 8, if that serves your purpose.  See the appropriate section here:

I have found the solution. It is similar to Windows 7 where you can remove the shortcut to the programs by going into C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs and moving the shortcuts you don't want displayed.
