JSI Tip 3692. How do I remove the Hardware tab from a drive's Properties, and from Control Panel Mouse, Keyboard, and Sounds and Multimedia?

To remove the Hardware tab from a drive's Properties, and from Control Panel Mouse, Keyboard, and Sounds and Multimedia, enable the Hide Hardware tab Group Policy at User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer.

If the policy is Enabled, the NoHardwareTab value name, a REG_DWORD data type, is set to 1, at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer.
