Hello Experts,  Does anyone know of a Group Policy Object that will prevent the user from being able to path out to a locations on the network i.e. \\PSIDC1\PSI from a search bar in a browser or from Windows Explorer?  Thanks!

if you need to know this for a troubleshooting perspective, i don't think it is a standard prctice used by any administrator. But you can always see what GPOs are in effect by running this command - GPRESULT /R > results.txt

Basically this consists of disabling the run command through group policy.  This will break windows explorer and browsing if thats what you want.  It will also most likely lead to other issues since mapped drives are from UNC paths.  You might get a headache eventually.
