No "Entire Network" in My Network Places

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer


Removes all computers outside of the user's workgroup or local domain from lists of network resources in Windows Explorer and My Network Places.

If you enable this policy, the system removes the Entire Network option and the icons representing networked computers from My Network Places and from the browser associated with the Map Network Drive option.

This policy does not prevent users from viewing or connecting to computers in their workgroup or domain. It also does not prevent users from connecting to remote computers by other commonly used methods, such as typing the share name in the Run dialog box or the Map Network Drive dialog box.
