Removing certain entries from start menu on server 2019

th flag

I've been trying to find a method to remove entries from the start menu. I've found a GPO that removes all the entries, which is not what I want. I've found that some shortcuts can be removed by simply deleting .lnk files from %appdata%/local/microsoft/windows/startmenu. On Server2019 however, there are also entries that do not have a .lnk file such as settings, windows-security or search.

I've found some suggestions which removed the search entry but that affected also the general search functionality of windows, which is not what I want.

It can't be impossible, can it? Microsoft forums do not really help any further.

@joeqwerty I am familiar with that page but that doesn't say anything about the list of programs :/

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
