Group Policy - Enable properties


I can't seem to find the group policy settings which disables properties from applications. e.g. right click on outlook and click properties. I'd like to know where it is so i can enable and disable this for different policies.

Hi dcarrion,

there isnt a right click option per application   -  there is an all round right click one

User configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer\Remove Windows Explorer's default context menu

There are two types of Right Context menus: one is for Default Shell (ei. Windows Shell - explorer.exe) and another one is for Internet Explorer.

Per-applications settings can be configured using WININSTLE found on Windows 2000 CD-ROM. I'm stil not sure but will try to figure out a solution for you.

You need to configure CLSID of application in registry to make this happen. If application settings uses Windows default Context menu CLSID then you can't. If it uses its own Context Menu then its possible though!
