    Disable Right Click on Desktop

    Hi

    Building some heavily locked down "thin Client" Windows 8 PC's. Turned off just about every functionality imaginable so just left with RDP icon on the desktop, does anyone know any way to completely disable the right click functionality on the desktop?

    Cheers
    Andrew
