  1. Hello Santosh, you can prevent from creating shortcuts “during client installation” as suggested by Harjit.

    “After Client Installation” – You could removehide the latest MEMCM Software Center shortcuts for All Users from this location “C:ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsMicrosoft Endpoint ManagerConfiguration ManagerSoftware Center.lnk”

    If you’re using SCCM Version below 1910, you can also locate the shortcuts at same location, Only Start menu folder names changed “C:ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuPrograms”

  2. You can install the SCCM client with the following command CCMSetup.exe /ExcludeFeatures:ClientUI to prevent installing Software Center altogether on the computers. Otherwise, you could use GP preferences to remove the shortcut.
