JSI Tip 3776. How do I limit newly scheduled items to programs on the user's Start menu?

To implement the subject functionality, Enable the Prohibit Browse Group Policy. The policy can target users at User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Task Scheduler or all users of a computer at Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Task Scheduler.

The policy is implemented via the Allow Browse value name, a REG_DWORD data type, at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0 or KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0. A data Value of 1 removes the Browse button from the Scheduled Task wizard and from the Task tab of a tasks Properties. Users can NOT edit the Run line or the Start in line.

NOTE: See the Disable Drag-and-Drop Group Policy.
