Hides the Manage item on the Windows Explorer context menu

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer


Removes the Manage item from the Windows Explorer context menu. This context menu appears when you right-click Windows Explorer or My Computer.

The Manage item opens Computer Management (Compmgmt.msc), a console tool which includes many of the primary Windows 2000 administrative tools, such as Event Viewer, Device Manager, and Disk Management. You must be an administrator to use many of the features of these tools.

This policy does not remove the Computer Management item from the Start menu (Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, Computer Management), nor does it prevent users from using other methods to start Computer Management.
