    Controlling context menu in group policies

    At the momment i have the right hand click feature disabled everywhere. But we have been asked that we enable the right hand click for students to create folders. i know that there is the menu on the left hand side but they need to have the right hand click for their coursework. Is there any way that i can disable features within the right hand click menu using group policies?

    If you open up explorer and right click to get the context menu, what is it you want to hide/remove?

    I wouldn't think you would need to. Are you on about removing the options such as View? If so why you want to remove these options? As you say they are available through the menu options anyway.

    Or am I thinking of the wrong menu?

    In Server 2003 I don't believe there is any method to specify what's in the Context menu. I think some registry editing may be in order. In saying that, there's nothing on the Properties window which is of use to anyone.
