Hide and unhide the shortcut link for Outlook (Office 365)

I hope you are well and can assist.

We are deploying Office 365 Pro Plus and want to hide the Outlook shortcut that appears when you click on Start > Programs menu.

Basically, hide the following.

D:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office 2013\Outlook 2013.lnk

We then want to enable it at some later stage.

Guys, what do you suggest, would be the best approach, and is it possible to do this via GPO, registry, etc?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi Vasil,
Thanks so much mate for your response.

We want to be able to:

1.Hide the Outlook shortcut immediately post install, so that users don't inadvertently click on it (we are moving from notes to outlook)
2.Then, at a later point in time, make the shortcut available.
