    Hide "Computer" tab in This PC?


    Click image for larger version
    Hey Guys - Great Forum - helps me a lot till now.

    I have a big Problem now. Is there any Reg-Key or a GPO-Setting to hide or deactivate the Network oder System Options in the "This PC" Menue? I canīt find anything. "Map Network Drive" I have found, but not more. Would prefer me to hide the whole Computer-Part in the Menue.

    Greetings from Germany

    Hi KetschupMajo, welcome to Windows EightForums.

    Not 100% sure what your intent is but, could it be matter of auto hiding the whole ribbon or not?

    Hi Edwin, thanks for answer.
    sorry no. The User could open it again. I want that the user canīt click on the Icons. At the screenshot you can see a green area.
    Thats OK. The Red one i want like the green one.
