CMSMenu::remove_menu_item('AssetAdmin');

You can often discover this type of information easily by looking at the id attribute in the html source. In this case the 'Files & Images' source shows:

<li class="" id="Menu-AssetAdmin"><a href="admin/assets/">Files &amp; Images</a></li>

I tried AssetAdmin and it worked.

I just tried this in _config.php:

//Hide a main CMS Tab
CMSMenu::remove_menu_item('CommentAdmin');
CMSMenu::remove_menu_item('ReportAdmin');
CMSMenu::remove_menu_item('Help');

The first two work, but 'Help' is still visible (in SS 2.4.2)...

This thread is six years old, and is about the 2.x series (no longer supported).
That last post is 5 years old and has the same result.

Although the example you seem to be looking at is well out of date, it looks like the original answer will still work.

Add the following to mysite/_config.php

CMSMenu::remove_menu_item('Help');
