Disable right-click on apps in the task bar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to disable the right-click menu (which I believe is called a jumplist) on the taskbar? I have disabled the right click menu (context menu) on both the taskbar and the the start button. But I can still right click on the apps in the taskbar.

    This is a problem because if there is a user prompt (i.e. a warning prompt that the user has no rights to the feature) they can right click this prompt and launch windows explorer. This gives them a way to access the system.

    I have done something similar in XP, where if you disable right click on the task bar, it will also be disabled on the apps running on it. But now in Windows 7 I can still right click the on the application found on the task bar even when the context menus has been disabled.

    I'm, trying to lock down windows 7 Pro so as it can be used as a Citrix client so that user only have access to the published application and not the native OS.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Rod
