    Terminal Services on Win 2008 r2 - Things to hide from students?

    I'm prepairing a Win 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services (formerly known as TS) and I'm doing what I can to clean it up for the students when they log in using rdc. Here are some of the things I still need to clean up, but unsure how to hide them.

    Remove, hide the Server Manager tool icon from the Taskbar on the bottom left next to the 'start'.
    Remove, hide Windows Powershell tool icon from the Taskbar on the bottom left next to the 'start'.
    Remove, hide Administrative Tools

    Is there a GPO addon i should be downloading for more Group Policy options for this?

    Thanks in advance for any pointers!

    The Powershell and Server Manager can be shifted by denying Students/Staff groups to the default C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\StartMenu and the QuickLaunch folders.

    The Start Menu Admin tools is a GPO Preference under User Config > Preferences > Control Panel > Start Menu.

    I did both of these in fact via an additional GPO set to merge linked at the OU where the RDS server(s) were
