Prohibit editing items

Prevents users from changing the properties of Web content items on their Active Desktop. This setting disables the Properties button on the Web tab in Display in Control Panel. Also it removes the Properties item from the menu for each item on the Active Desktop. As a result users cannot change the properties of an item such as its synchronization schedule password or display characteristics.
