How to disable Right Click menu on Windows Desktop

With a simple trick you can disable the Right click menu on the desktop for Windows operating system. This trick works for Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 2008 also.

You will need to modify a registry value for this. Before modifying the registry key be sure you are aware of how to modify the registry values. 

Open a registry editor then navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer". 

If a DWORD value with name "
NoViewContextMenu" is not present then create a DWORD value having name "NoViewContextMenu". Set its value to 1. 

Setting its value to 1 will not show the context menu on right clicking on Windows  desktop. You can set value to 0 if you want to revert the changes.

To reflect the changes you will need to restart or at least log off your computer.
