    Question

  • Hi,

    We are creating a kiosk mode of IE with full restriction to the machines drives and other applications. For that we need to disable all the shortcuts keys like ctrl, shift, alt and combination of these keys. Can anyone help me on this. i want to done this through GPO. Client machines are windows 7 and we are having windows server 2008 R2 (AD server).

    Thanks,

  • I need to disable the ctrl, Alt, and shift keys and combinations of these keys with other keys as for example, cltrl+H, Ctrl+o, ets., and most important thing is, we need to apply it only through GPO not by using any other tools/ applications.

    I'm not aware of any GPO-only methods to achieve your goal (hence my other suggestions), sorry.
