Can someone be able to provide a script .bat that may able to use to disable the function of dragging and dropping of any files through outlook or email?
I am also accepting any idea on how to implement it via GPO policy to disable the dragging and dropping function.

Hi Zyke,

Why do you need to disable it ?

You can use: Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) 5.5

Are you trying to remove the ability for users to drag and drop an email from Outlook to another location outside of Outlook?

Thank you for taking my query. My client wants to disabled the drag and drop function through email, to avoid users from using dragging or dropping of files directly to email. The client wants the user to insert files as attachment instead of using drag and drop to avoid incorrect files or documents being sent via email. The option  should be done tru script, local or gpo policy.

any files coming from computer desktop or any source where they can just drag and drop the source files to email, this should be disabled. (Drag and drop) function
