18.8.22.1.9 Ensure 'Turn off the 'Order Prints' picture task' is set to 'Enabled'

Information

This policy setting specifies whether the 'Order Prints Online' task is available from Picture Tasks in Windows folders.

The Order Prints Online Wizard is used to download a list of providers and allow users to order prints online.

The recommended state for this setting is: Enabled.

Rationale:

In an enterprise managed environment we want to lower the risk of a user unknowingly exposing sensitive data.

Solution

To establish the recommended configuration via GP, set the following UI path to Enabled:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\System\Internet Communication Management\Internet Communication settings\Turn off the 'Order Prints' picture task

Note: This Group Policy path is provided by the Group Policy template ICM.admx/adml that is included with all versions of the Microsoft Windows Administrative Templates.

Impact:

The task 'Order Prints Online' is removed from Picture Tasks in File Explorer folders.


Default Value:

Disabled. (The 'Order Prints Online' task is displayed in Picture Tasks in File Explorer folders.)
