By chuck ·
I would like to disable the "NEW" option on the context menu when a user right clicks on the desktop or anywhere in windows.

That's going to have to be a .adm import to a GPO. The hard part will be locating the key that allows that option and then finding the point in the binary that turns it off.

You can completely disable the context menu's via GPO, but that doesn't sound like what you want.

I've been searching through the best site I know of for Group Policy settings:
http://www.tburke.net/info/regentry/topics/
and I can't find what you are looking for.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Do you want to remove the list of programs in the right-click New list? Or do you want to remove the Shortcut and/or Folder option listed in that New menu?
Or is it both?
I know that you can remove the programs list by clearing out the SendTo folder for the user profile, or set SendTo to an empty folder.
To do that, read this:

(please remove any spaces)

Anyway, please post exactly what you are looking to do.
