SUMMARY: Remove right-click menu items from Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 that some third-party software programs add.

When you right-click on a web page in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, options normally appear such as "Back", "Forward", "View Source", etc. However, depending on software you have installed (sometimes unwittingly), other options may appear when you open this menu. If you are seeing items in the right-click menu that you want to remove, you can try this trick.

(WARNING! This tip involves modifying the Registry. Mistakes can cause Windows or applications to stop functioning normally. Use at your own risk.)

1. From the "Start" menu, select "Run", then type in "Regedit" and press "OK".
2. In the Registry, navigate to the following section: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt.
3. Now, underneath this key you may find folders representing menu items you want to remove. To remove the menu items, just click on the keys and choose "Delete".

Better yet how do you restrict right clicking all together?

For IE and FF





<script language="JavaScript">

<!--



var message="";

///////////////////////////////////

function clickIE() {if (document.all) {(message);return false;}}

function clickNS(e) {if

(document.layers||(document.getElementById&&!docum ent.all)) {

if (e.which==2||e.which==3) {(message);return false;}}}

if (document.layers)

{document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);document. onmousedown=clickNS;}

else{document.onmouseup=clickNS;document.oncontext menu=clickIE;}



document.oncontextmenu=new Function("return false")

// -->

</script>

No for the OS funtions like desktop menus and all the fun stuff. Disable it entirely. I know it can be done as it is at my school.

I dont think you can just disable it but you can restrict it from being used using gpedit.msc GPO.

Well it's a matter of word choice it's restricted/disabled for our usergroup so perhaps it's a usergroup policy somehwere but is open to the teacher group. Our network is run by Novel Servers.
