If you disable this policy or do not configure it, users can open a new browser window from the File menu.

This policy does not prevent users from opening a new browser window by right clicking, and then clicking the Open in New Window command. To prevent users from using the shortcut menu to open new browser windows, you should also set the Disable Open in New Window menu option policy, which disables this command on the shortcut menu, or the Disable context menu policy, which disables the entire shortcut menu.
