Due to the fact I have a laptop not designed for gaming I have no use of the Gaming chapter in Start/Settings.
Secondly, I have a 14 inch screen so space is tight. Therefor I have removed the Gaming chapter with the (modified) Windows 10 Register setting.

Open register by typing regedit in Start searchbar and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

In the right pane at SettingsPageVisibility modify by double klick and change it's value data into:

hide:gaming-gamebar;gaming-gamedvr;gaming-gamemode

Hit enter and when Start/Settings is opened, gaming is now removed.

Good luck with trying.

Am I missing something or can you just turn them all off in settings?

When you do this, the chapter is removed from sight. My goal is to have it not shown in settings.
