    Dear All,
    I want to delete all our domain users Windows Defualt Games from their PC.
    one way to achive is by creating a .bat and manually specify one by one game in that file.

    is there any other way to achive this task using Group Policy or So

    This can definity be done by locking down the users start menu options. But im no GPO expert so im sure someone will post which policies to enable/disable. This link can be helpful if you are looking for a specific policy to enable. You can use the find tool to search for a policy.

    This is nice but we've around 450 Users in our HO and 100 across the country so is there any way to perform it automatically
