How do I remove the Goto menu from Explorer?

A. Service Pack 4 for Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 support a system policy "Remove Tools->GoTo menu from Explorer". To configure via the policy editor, poledit.exe, perform the following:

  1. Start the policy editor
  2. Load a policy or create a new one
  3. Select "Default User"
  4. Expand Windows NT Shell, Restrictions
  5. Check "Remove Tools->GoTo menu from Explorer"
  6. Click OK
  7. Save

Alternatively you can perform this directly in the registry

  1. Start the registry editor (regedt32.exe)
  2. Move to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
  3. From the Edit menu select New - Binary value
  4. Enter a name of "NoGoTo" and press Enter
  5. Double click the new value and set to 1
  6. Click OK
  7. Close the registry editor
