    Check this
    open gpedit.msc (or any other Group Policy Object, e.g. AD GPO) and navigate to
    User configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer

    The setting you want to modify is:
    "Remove Windows Explorer's default context menu"

    There are total of three contexts menu in Windows:  -

    Desktop Context Menu                               When users do right click on Desktop a context menu will come.
    Explorer Context Menu                               When they click on files and folders in Windows Explorer shell.
    Internet Explorer Context Menu                   When then open Internet Explorer and do right click on a link.

    Now which one you want to disable? Group policy has settings for all context menus and in a different way.
