You want to take a peek in :-

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ ContextMenuHandlers

You’ll likely find the option there, deleting the key removes items from
the right click that the users don’t need.

You may also want to look at


For individual files you can look at the file class to remove right click
options e.g. I’ve done a similar exercise for clients who don’t want users
to be able to print when they are working remotely: so the request was to
remove the right-click print option, done by removing:


To further lock down the environment (looking at file menu structures,
hiding dialogue boxes, preventing access to buttons) you’d need a third
party tool like AppSense’s Environment Manager to make that an easier
process to manage… in fact that reminds me.. I’m sure I asked for this sort
of thing to be a feature… must check if it is :?

Don’t forget to remove the option to scan network drives; don’t want your
Citrix servers doing that…

*Subject:* [THIN] Remove right click "Scan for threats" option


We publish Windows Explorer for our users.  Our servers have McAfee
VirusScan 8.7 installed.  Im trying to remove the "Scan for threats" option
as users can effectively scan the entire citrix server.  This may have a
performance hit on our servers.  Is there a way to remove the "Scan from
threat" menu option without disabling right click all together?
