    Disable F11 key, IE7

    Anyone know if there is a way to disable the F11 (full screen) key in Internet Explorer 7?

    When we are viewing the kids screens in VNC, they are hiding the address bars so we can't easily glean which sites they are on when they are gaming and such like.

    They do this by hitting F11 to go full screen which is a pain.

    Any way to disable this using Group Policy perhaps?

    I know we have disabled it in group policy, just had a look through our policy and i think it is under, Admin Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Browser Menus "View Menu - Disable full screen menu option"

    If F11 is not used in any other programs why not simply remap the F11 key to something else, like F1. That would fix them.

    Yep that what they did until i disabled it. Another trick was to auto hide the task bar so you can see what’s open.

    Others have posted the answer to your question, but as another approach, do you use a proxy server? If so, you can query the logs to see what they're doing. This also gives you "after the event" proof of badness if it's needed.
