There are many general restrictions you can make to the Start Menu, the Explorer and to the Desktop itself.

1. Start Regedit
2. Go to HKEY_Current_User / Software / Microsoft / Windows / CurrentVersion / Policies
3. There should already be at least a Explorer section there already
4. Additional keys that can be created under Policies are WinOldApp

6. To re-enable them, either delete the key or set the value to 0
