Frankly, I don't know of any way to control notepad through policy. And, assuming you're using the "Prevent Access to these drives", I suspect Notepad uses APIs that don't respect that policy. I think your best bet is to control access to the local hard drive through permissions. Even then it won't be 100% because you can't prevent the user from writing to every spot on the local hard drive, but you can make the obvious places (e.g. c:\) locked down and harder to get to.

I've applied a GPO which restricts users from doing anything but their work. They're not supposed to access drives/USB Storage devices. They've got access to notepad as they're supposed to note down their stuff (but are not supposed to save anything). Now the problem is that when they use File > Save option, it disaplays the message that "You don't have access to it". After they click on "Ok", Common Dialog box (Save) is displayed. If they click on My Computer, they can't see C:\ Drive, but if they type C:\File.txt, it is saved. How can I solve this issue? Please help :( Is there any way I can disable Save/Open in option in File menu, or can I disabled entire File Menu??? Regards, LP _____ Yahoo! Mail is the world's favourite email.
