    If there is (I know about disabling right click) then I haven't found it, and I've found virtually every other possible lock down options for the clients.

    Re: Remove internet explorer print option

    Using your favorite registry hacking method (mandatory profiles, importing a .reg file, reg.exe, etc)

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Int ernet Explorer\Restrictions

    Create a new DWORD value called 'NoPrinting' with a value of '1'

    Other keys that can be created in the same place to further lock down IE:

    AlwaysPromptWhenDownload - Always prompt user when downloading files.
    NoBrowserBars - Disable changes to browsers bars.
    NoBrowserClose - Disable the option of closing Internet Explorer.
    NoBrowserContextMenu - Disable right-click context menu.
    NoBrowserOptions - Disable the Tools > Internet Options menu.
    NoBrowserSaveAs - Disable the ability to Save As.
    NoFavorites - Disable the Favorites.
    NoFileNew - Disable the File > New command.
    NoFileOpen - Disable the File > Open command.
    NoFindFiles - Disable the Find Files command.
    NoNavButtons - Disables the Forward and Back navigation buttons
    NoOpeninNewWnd - Disable Open in New Window option.
    NoPrinting - Remove Print and Print Preview from the File menu.
    NoSelectDownloadDir - Disable the option of selecting a download drectory.
    NoTheaterMode - Disable the Full Screen view option.
    NoViewSource - Disable the ability to view the page source HTML.
    RestGoMenu - Remove Mail and News menu item.

    It would be nice if they were in the gpo, but I might have a go tomorrow to see how they work out.

    I think they might be in the IEAK ADM templates but I'm not sure. You could always knock an ADM template up of course.

    Re: Remove internet explorer print option

    As geoff says, they are in a IE adm file - not at work right now but you can do *alot* using the correct adm file.

    ...Just been nosing...

    Not sure how your GP is setup, but you'll find a whole host of stuff under:

    Machine / User > Windows Components > Internet Explorer

    If it isnt there, then you are missing the inetres.adm file I would wager from the system somewhere - just check C:\Windows\inf for the .adm files and see if its there [and on the server too].

    I've only taken a quick look at the file but i didnt see the disabling printing from IE there - so you still may need to use geoff's method or create a custom .adm file to use in your GP

    Regards
    N.

    I think you need to change the settings in the HKCU hive rather than HKLM for W2k to pick up the restriction.
