    disable Menu Bar in ie7 GPO

    I plan to install IE7 on the network.
    I've nearly locked down, just one last thing.
    I want to disable the Menu Bar.

    Its hidden by default, however if a user presses ALT they can then see it.
    Is there an option that can easily turn this off completely?

    If its a reg fix, a local comoputer reg fix would be good. Thats how i removed other option i didn't want.

    Group policies - User Config / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Internet Explorer / Turn on menu bar by default (disable this setting to turn it off and not allow users to turn it on again).

    should give you the reg key/s you want

    or

    1. Add the DWORD value AlwaysShowMenus (set the value to 0) to the following key:

    [HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

    2. Add the following key

    [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser]
    maybe

    BoX
