How to remove PRINT option from IE 5.0

By SLAC ·
How can we remove the PRINT menu option from InterNet Explorer 5.0? We run a computer lab on a limited budget and have to control the excessive student printouts from the InterNet. Thus we want to modify the browser software to disable (or at least hide) the PRINT menu option.

I assume that the printer is shared on a network. The best way to limit access would be to Password it. Go to Control Panel/Printers - right click on the printer and choose Properties. Choose the Sharing tab and set the printer to 'shared as', name it and Password it.

I don't believe that it is possible to modify the menus unless you have access to the source code. You can remove the print icon from the tool bar, but I doubt that will solve your problem.

Check www.jsiinc.com for a Reg Hack.

Also see about getting IEAK, which is used to configure IE for distribution. Yeah, mostly your distribution has been done, but you may find a clue for removing the File->Print option.

Don't forget about right-click menus!
