Turn off Shortcut Menu

This policy setting prevents the shortcut menu from appearing when a user right-clicks a webpage while using Internet Explorer. Starting with Windows 8 this policy setting only applies to Internet Explorer on the desktop. If you enable this policy setting the shortcut menu will not appear when a user right-clicks a webpage. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting users can use the shortcut menu.
