Disable Context menu

Prevents the shortcut menu from appearing when users click the right mouse button while using the browser.

If you enable this policy, the shortcut menu will not appear when users point to a Web page, and then click the right mouse button.

If you disable this policy or do not configure it, users can use the shortcut menu.

This policy can be used to ensure that the shortcut menu is not used as an alternate method of running commands that have been removed from other parts of the interface.
