How to take away features from users in

This works on Win98, it may work on Win95. Click on Start, go to Settings, then to Control Panel. Under Control Panel, click the Users icon. Choose a user from the list (which is a list of all user profiles on that machine). Under the heading "Settings for username," click on Change Settings. the Personalized Items Settings box appears. Under the heading "Settings" select or deselect items to personalized the user's machine. After making your selections, click your way out. You can alsodo this when you set up a user on a machine. Hope this helps.

We (we I work) restricted Windows 95 user access to things like desktop icons and control panel by using SYSTEM POLICIES. The system policy editor is not installed automatically (that's a good thing). However you can install in on the admin PC from the WIN95 CD. Then you create the polict however you want and save the file. Copy that file to the login directory of you PDC. I suggest you use a TEST clinet first. One wrong move and you can screw everyone on your network if you just use the default user.

What you are discribing was almost certanly done using System Policies, the program you need to create these policies is included on your Win95 CD under the directory admin\apptools\poleditInstructions on how to use this program and set up policies can be found on the resource kit in chapter 8(also included on your CD under the directory admin\reskit\helpfile\)
System Policy Editor is not installed by default by Windows you will need to install it by going to Control Pannels>Add/Remove Programs then click on have disk and browse to the directory mentioned above on your Win95 CD.

You need to user system policy editor which is installable from admin\apptools\poledit on the win95 CD. You can also install support for group policies from the same directory by using the grouppol.dll file. This needs tio be installed on all 95 clients.

If you have mixed clients (ie NTW) then you will have to use the winNT policy editor for those clients (the registries are different on win 95 and nt so require different policy editors).

Chapter 15 of the win95 resource kit (User profiles and System policies) gives a full over view of the policy editor and all settings available. This is also documented on the technet cd's.
