I have been preparing a group policy on a Win2K server to lock down Win 2K
and XP workstations when using Internet Explorer. I can prevent someone
from using the "Open" option on the IE drop down menu, but I can't find a
group policy option to turn off the address bar. I find it difficult to
imagine that as powerful as group policies are, that the option does not
exist. Does anyone know where the option to turn off or disable the address
bar is????

I hate to think about having to turn it off on each individual workstation
and not being able to do it thru a group policy.

Thanks so much for your help,

To disable the Address Bar from being shown, set the NoAddressBar value to 1
Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbars\Restrictions

To prevent the user from enabling the Address bar, set NoBandCustomize value to 1
Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Thanks Ramesh for the help, but now I'm a little more confused.

The settings you have shown below appear to be registry settings that need
to be set for the individual machine. Is that true? I just went and edited
my internet restriction policy and I did not see the 2 areas below that you
show. Can you give me a little more direction?

Thanks again,

Hi Joe,

Not sure if the Group Policy equivalent are available in Win2k, for those two registry values. Perhaps this article would help:

Distributing Registry Changes in Windows 2000:

You may try this question here, as well:
