GPO to change Windows 2016 settings menu on RDS

Hi,

I have a new Windows 2016 RDS farm.
Is there a possibility to adjust the Windows settings menu?
For example, remove “Update and Security” or “Network and Internet” ….
One problem is that a "normal" user can open the settings menu, install Windows updates and then restart the server. Restart a RDS server????

The only possibility GPO is “Remove access to use all Windows Update feature” but this is a computer policy. When I configure this policy, also admin users have no more access to install updates.

Thanks
Michael

        It's been almost a year, but the madness continues. Unable to manage the settings page on RDS. This alone pretty much kills the viability of RDS on 2016.
        This needs to be fixed! Any news?
        Is anyone at MS actually even reading these posts?
