As a security measure, you may want to restrict users not to get the right click context menu in Windows 7 desktop and explorer. Here is a tutorial, on how to disable right click on the desktop and explorer in Windows 7.
As we have said in our previous tutorials; Disable access to Windows Task Manager in Windows 7 and Disable right click on the taskbar in Windows 7; this trick can be used to for creating a Windows 7 based KIOSK or embedded system, for banks or other institutions, or any where where the administrator simply do not want the user to know what operating system is running or simply to stop users to customize the particular computer.
Click Start button, type œregedit (without the quotation marks) and press Enter from keyboard. Accept the security prompt to run Windows registry editor:
Go to the key: œHKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies ; create a new sub key named œExplorer by right click over Policies > New > Key :
In the right pane, create a new 32 bit DWORD value named œNoViewContextMenu and set as data œ1 (Simply right click on the right pane > New > 32 bit DWORD value to create it):
Now when you right click on the desktop or explorer, Simply nothing happens.
To re enable right click on the desktop or explorer again, simply delete the subkey you have created or, set the value to œ0 (Zero).Tagged With disable right click , windows 7 disable right click , disable right click windows 7 , windows disable right click , right click disabled windows 7 , Enable Right Click Windows 7 , no right click windows 7 , disable right click on desktop windows 7 , how to disable right click on desktop , disable right click windows
I followed these instructions, checked and rechecked, but right click still works and I am unable to solve my “Windows Explorer not working.”
It seems to me that you are going to use for your serious business. Kindly do the exact thing in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE as well. Got it? I am repeating it again : To disable right click in Windows 7, who are not getting it working by using the above method in HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer ; Kindly do the exact thing in the same hierarchy of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE too. There is no other known way to disable right click in Windows 7, as far I know.
I am not sure what you want to say by “I am unable to solve my â€œWindows Explorer not working.â€ Is the problem happened after doing the registry change or was present before? Kindly list the major programs you are using.
Ive done all of this but it doest work for me i tried restarting my computer but it
doesnt work at all T_T…
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I truly appreciate your efforts and I will be
waiting for your next post thanks once again.
This disables right click for all users (admin included). What about setting this up for just a specific kiosk user?
