    I have a V90LE, y default they are setup such that a User cannot drag and drop anything onto the desktop. I would like to turn this off. I have once machine that will need this option but cannot for the life of me find out how to enable this option. Can it be done?

    Also, does any one know how to remove the confirm box of ‘are you sure you want to delete this’ when deleting files/shortcuts…. I would like to hit delete and just make the file disappear, I know one has to be careful with this.

    Could be this key:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer]
    “NoViewContextMenu”=dword:00000001
    Disables the right mouse click on the desktop.

    I found my answer with some more tinkering…..

    It is a registry key named “NoViewOnDrive” under CurrentUserSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer

    Depending on what the value is sets restrictions on if the user can write to certain drives or not. See the Microsoft article here -> http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/regentry/93573.mspx?mfr=true

    Thanks for that other website though lots of good info, I will keep refing it as needed.

    Thank you.
