Hide Privacy Tab

Hides the Privacy tab.

This policy hides the Privacy tab in Windows Media Player. The default privacy settings are used for the options on the Privacy tab unless the user changed the settings previously.

The Update my music files (WMA and MP3 files) by retrieving missing media information from the Internet check box is on the Privacy and Media Library tabs. When this policy is enabled, the Update my music files (WMA and MP3 files) by retrieving missing media information from the Internet check box on the Media Library tab is available, even though the Privacy tab is hidden, unless the Prevent Music File Media Information Retrieval policy is enabled.

When this policy is not configured or disabled, the Privacy tab is not hidden, and users can configure any privacy settings not configured by other polices.


Supported on: Windows Media Player 9 Series and later.
