November 13th, 2023 by Admin

After upgrading to Windows 11 23H2, you may find that Microsoft adds a new Home page to the Settings app, which shows a list of recommended settings including a shortcut to turn on/off Bluetooth. If you don’t like the new Home page, you can hide or remove it with ease. In this tutorial we’ll show you 2 simple methods to remove the Home page from the Settings app in Windows 11.

Method 1: Remove the Home Page from the Settings App Using Group Policy

  1. Open the Local Group Policy Editor and browse to: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel, then double-click the policy called “Settings Page Visibility” in the right pane.

  2. Select Enabled. Under the Options section, type hide:home in the text box next to “Settings Page Visibility”. Click Apply and then OK.

  3. Close the Local Group Policy Editor. Relaunch the Settings app and the new Home page will be missing.

Method 2: Remove the Home Page from the Settings App Using Registry Editor

  1. Open Registry Editor and navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. In the right pane, right-click the empty space and choose New -> String Value.

  2. Name the string SettingsPageVisibility, and then double-click it to modify. Type hide:home in the Value data field and click OK.

  3. Close Registry Editor. When you open the Settings app again, it will open the System page by default, and the new Home page disappears.

That’s it!
