    You can stop users from changing certain settings on Control Panel, and in this guide we'll show you how to do it on Windows 10.

    Although the Windows 10 Settings app is positioned as the primary experience to configure and personalize your device, Control Panel still available with a lot of settings — many of which you probably don't want users to change.
    If you share your computer with other people, or you work as an IT administrator for an organization, there will be times when you may not want users to have full access to Control Panel, as this usually results in unwanted configurations. You could restrict total access to both, Control Panel and Settings, but if that isn't an ideal solution, on Windows 10, it's possible to use the Local Group Policy Editor and the Registry to hide only those settings you don't want users to change.
    You can also restrict access to pages in the Settings app, but to do that, you need to follow these instructions instead.

    I'm hammered by the fact that you can not use the COM-port without admin rights.
