18.9.20.1.9 Ensure 'Turn off the 'Order Prints' picture task' is set to 'Enabled' - 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.

Impact:

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

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.

Default Value:

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