Group policy to disable Shift+Delete on all windows 7 cleints

    Question

  • Hi,

    On windows 2012 server with active directory.

    we would like to have a policy which will not allow user to use shift+delete in any desktop.

    purpose is to avoid accidently deletion of file from users (don't want to allow users to delete any file from a client machine)

    Regards,

    Lakshmikanth

  • Hi Lakshmikanth,
    As far as I know, it seems that there is no built-in method to disable Shift+Delete via group policy.
    And generally speaking, users usually delete a file with just pressing delete, instead of Shift+Delete.
    If you want to prevent users deleting files, I would suggest to adjust the permission of the files to read-only for users.
    Best regards,
    Wendy

  • It is not that easy to disable just shift+delete.  If needed you can enable a "Kiosk" mode. But it will have many restrictions.

    Also, review App Locker and its functionalities - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd759117(v=ws.11).aspx
