Hello. I have around 15-20 computers that are not connected to a server and I have students that are getting things on the computers they shouldn't and then putting them in folders and hiding the folders. I know I can just go in and choose show hidden folders but I would like to just remove that option for them. I still want them to be able to create folders and use them as normal. I just want to remove their rights to hide folders (escpecially folders they create). Even if I had to remove this option for everyone, I am willing to do it.  I would prefer to do this somehow in the GPO but am willing to change the Registry. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry, but I know nearly nothing about Group Policy.


You might want to post this in another forum (such as networking or software - maybe business applications or the Server OS's)

Title it with a reference to Group Policy in order to attract those who know about it.

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
