Hi ,
is there a way to do in group policy to deny users to access folder options?
i believe that i can do it thru regedit but i have to do it for multi users and i cant do it manually in each user except there is a way to push a script (to amend reg edit thru GPO).

you can export the registry changes to a .reg file and then create either a login script (batch file) to run, or a group policy - run on login script to implement the registry change

you can use group policy to put the keys you in the registry and direct it only at the computers/people you want.. As opposed to having group policy run a script..

Configure the following policy setting in a GPO linked to the OU with user objects:
\User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer\Removes the Folder Options menu item from the Tools menu
