Is there any way to prevent my kids to change settings in Windows Explorer? I know about security softwares and stuff but they cost money.
There must be a way to remove options in Windows explorer menu.
I want to remove some options from windows Explorer. Where and how?
Most of all removing menu folder options.

Note this involves editing the registry so if you have any problems boot to the command prompt and run scanreg /restore
