This policy setting is used only to simplify the Regional Options control panel. If you enable this policy setting the user cannot see the Administrative options. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting the user can see the Administrative options. Note: Even if a user can see the Administrative options other policies may prevent them from modifying the values.
