    Does it exist in Group Policy? If so, it’s likely to stay in the final release.

    Is there any way so that I can hide the “display” section/page from the settings app? Or just make the screen resolution drop down menu greyed out so that it can’t be changed? I urgently need to do this but can’t find any solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)
