I have a SharePoint 2010 site with a list view of filtered documents. Basically I am using a filtered list of Documents in a kiosk type of view and I only want to people to click the document and open them only. I don't want then to use dropdown to see the properties or anything.

How do I turn off the dropdown option on a specific webpage only?

If I understand you correctly you can do this by modifying the view.  

Remove the column called:
 "Name (linked to document with edit menu) " 

and replace it with a column called:
"Name (for use in forms)"   (for plain text)
or
"Name (linked to document)"   (for a url to the document).

Yes that was the answer I was looking for. I thought it was a coding thing. Great answer.
