Remove right click option in TS 2012 R2 start button

    Question

  • Is there any build in function from Microsoft to remove the right click option on the start button for my Terminal users, as they don't have to see all the option there?

    And I think I have closed all down in GPO, but they are still able to open Event viewer and Network connection and worst, my computer management, where I can see they have the option for example, to remove under device manager?

    Can it be possible that Microsoft hasn't think of this, as a problem for their own Terminal solution?

    You can control this by yourself in the default profile under:
    C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX

    Here you can hide/remove those shortcut you don't want the users to see.

    Remember that the WinX folder can be hidden....

    Please look at my answer, it is working.

    You can set it in GPO, as you can see i have done in the Picture.

  • You can also just HIDE the the files, or better yet, the folders Group 2 and 3. (Group 1 is just the Desktop):

    Which would result in this:

  • I would suggest using %USERPROFILE% variable instead of %UserName%:
