I'm trying to disable the context menu for IE11 on a computer with Windows 7 32-bit using the local group policy editor.

The path is User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer>Browser menus. This should contain a setting called 'Disable Context Menu' (it's there with previous IE versions), however it's missing with IE11.

I've checked it on several computers which have IE11 installed and it's missing on all of them. There also doesn't appear to be a registry setting for this.

Is this by design? Is there any other way to disable the context menu?

Have you tried adding it to the registry?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions

In the right pane, add the DWORD NoBrowserContextMenu and set it to 1.

That option appears to be missing from the registry. Can I add it in manually?
