Remove the “Properties” Option from My Computer

Use this hack to hide the System Properties screen and remove the Properties option from My Computer. Useful if you don’t want anyone messing around with, well, Your Computer.

Navigate to:

HCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
And to:
HLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Set the DWORD Value NoPropertiesMyComputer to 1 to hide the Properties option. Reset it to 0 to re- enable what you disabled.

Restart or log off and back on for the change to take effect.

About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
