Disable SHIFT+Restart option

Hello all.

I guess you already know that holding SHIFT key while selecting restart will lead you to the recovery options menu.

Is there any way I can disable this?

Thank you

I want to do this because i have configured policies in UEFI that prevent booting form other media (DVD/USB) than the Hard Drive (I put HDD first at boot sequence) and on this page these settings can be bypassed. And I don't want that for security reasons.

So... is there any way I can disable the recovery settings or at least cripple it so that it is inaccessible in this way?

Thank you
