Are you trying to lock down a machine so only a single app runs by any chance?

Hi,

what do you want to exactly disable for users? There is no option to disable "Task Bar" in GPO by default but you can disallow them many other things. Just let me know more details if you're interested. I will try to help you

Regards,
Krzysztof

OK, so create new GPO and navigate to

User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Start Menu and Taskbar

there you will find many useful policies to disallow users accessing Start Menu and Taskbar options/objects.

Then assign that policy to appropriate user's OU (because it is user setting)

If you need further assistance, just let me know

Regards,
Krzysztof

Install it on a test box, and use the ADM templates to create a GPO to lock down the user's environment. The most common settings you are referring to are in a handful of places, all conveniently into a single ADM file.....

Although you cannot hide the taskbar, you can prevent right clcking to prevent modifications to it.........

I would create setup the profile visually how you would like it locked down, removing shortcuts, program files entries, favorites etc...., then apply the GPO.
