Isn't that a little on the totalitarian side? Try display properties, desktop, web, follow the instructions & check lock desktop items.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

How do you know it isn't for, say, a display kiosk? Perhaps the OP's work is a retail store of some kind and it would be beneficial to have a public terminal to access their website.

OP - there is an old program I used to use for kiosk-type setups. You might like it. It's called WinLock Professional. It is not free but I think you can find a trial. There are lots of similar programs out there, some free. It's a LOT harder to try to get the settings perfect if you are trying to do it just using Windows settings...probably not worth the time, so just look into third party programs for it.

Cheers

He didn't say kiosk. He didn't say public terminal. He said at work.

Glad I could help!

guapo:
When someone asks a question and doesn't provide much background info, it doesn't hurt to try to infer that kind of info from the other info they DID provide. In this case "public terminal" or "kiosk" are appropriate descriptions - parallels, if you will - for what is actually being done. Stripping down the interface for specific tasks = what is done to a kiosk, and also what is being done here, so they're the same thing functionally.
