  • Hi Sandy, though this cannot be achieved in Windows SteadyState, we can use the following group policy to do that:

    User Configuration\AdministrativeTemplates\Start Menu & Taskbar

    For detailed information, you can check the following article:

  • Hi Sean Zhu,

    This problem is already solute, but i want to block the combination of ctrl+alt+delete .....

    Your link describe my problem too :

    "This policy affects the Start menu only. It does not affect the Log Off item on the Windows Security dialog box that appears when you press CTRL+ALT+DEL, and it does not prevent users from using other methods to log off."

    can you help me?

    best regards sandy

  • Hi Sandy, though Windows SteadyState does not contain the function to disable such keyboard combo, you can check the solution in the following thread:
