All Programs List won't remove on Windows 10

micromanexpert used Ask the Experts™
After the Windows 10 Anniversary update the "Remove All Programs List from the Start Menu" policy object no longer seems to apply on a clients PC. The "All Programs" folder isn't on the PC (or my personal PC for that matter, which doesn't have the policy enacted) but the list just appears directly next to the Start menu folders. The user on the PC with the policy isn't supposed to have access to more than about 7-8 programs which are set as Start Tiles.  The policy is restricting everything else it is supposed to except this. I am wondering if the definition of the "All Programs List" has changed and how I can restrict access again. This is a local GPO for a Workgroup machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can confirm this. The policy works on 1511 but does not on 1607.
There were policies that no longer worked on 1607 unless you have the enterprise edition, but this policy is not said to be one of those. See

So it could be a bug. Contact MS


I'll contact Microsoft. Thanks for the information, much appreciated.
