Custom Intune Policy to Remove Windows 10 People from Taskbar

In this post I am going to show you how to create a custom Windows 10 configuration policy to remove the People icon from the taskbar with Intune.


  • Sign into the Azure Intune Portal
  • Navigate to Device configuration > Profiles
  • Click + Create profile
  • Use the following settings:
    • Name: Windows 10 – Customizations (change the name based on your own convention)
    • Description (Optional): Remove the People icon from the Windows 10 taskbar
    • Select Windows 10 and later from the Platform drop-down
    • Select Custom for the Profile type

  • Now from the Custom OMA-URI Settings blade, click Add
    • Name: HidePeopleBar
    • Description: Remove the People icon from the Windows 10 taskbar.
    • OMA-URI: ./User/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Start/HidePeopleBar
    • Data type: Integer
    • Value: 1

  • Once complete, click OK, click OK again, and finally click Save.
  • Assign the new policy to your Windows 10 devices
