Remove CD Burning features

This policy setting allows you to remove CD Burning features. File Explorer allows you to create and modify re-writable CDs if you have a CD writer connected to your PC.

If you enable this policy setting, all features in the File Explorer that allow you to use your CD writer are removed.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, users are able to use the File Explorer CD burning features.
