Ready to deploy Patron computers in our library, but testing reveals a few questions..... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Which parameter do I need to check/uncheck to allow my Patron  to display "Safely remove hardware". We want to allow our patrons access to the internet and to read/write to their memory stick.

    Which parameter do I need to check/uncheck to allow Patrons to get to explore? Right click on start is the normal way, but that opens up several other options......

    Once profile is stable, we will lock profile and initiate WDP. Later we will add CD read/write capabilities.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi Bob, we can uncheck the restriction under  User Settings -> Windows Restrictions -> General Restrictions -> Prevent access to Windows Explorer features: Folder Options, Customize Toolbar, and the Notification Area. Then, let's see if the tray appears.


    Meanwhile, for such issue, you can also check the following post:

    Hope this helps!
