    Hi Bluerhino, though Windows SteadyState does not offer the option in its UI, we can edit registry to achieve the target. You can follow the steps below to disable right click on desktop.


    1.       Click Start, go to Run, type "regedit" and press Enter.

    2.       Locate the following entry:


    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersionPolicies\ Explorer]  


    3.       Create a new DWORD value named NoViewContextMenu and set the value to 1.

    4.       Restart the computer.


    The entry in above steps are for current user, if you want to disable it on all users, you can use the entry [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsCurrentVersion\ instead.
