DesktopBackground Shell entries conflict with Policies DisallowCpl
Sorry for the cryptic title...
I've used GPedit to hide a looong list of useless Control Panel Items, but i've hit a wall with the Display and the Personalization items, if i try to hide those, the desktop context-menu entries that point to those locations stop working.
I've tried to remove the DelegateExecute command from
but they are locked.
I should be able to hide those icons and then use RunDLL32 for the Display.cpl (not so sure about Personalization, since that's not a cpl) on the "(default)" command, but i can't change that value either.
I've manually added shortcuts to Control Panel to DesktopBackground in this way. And also Mobility Center and Color Management, by pointing the default action to the exe path.
I've cheated a bit with those, since i don't know enough about Registry editing to figure it out on my own, i just copied the Strings from HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Gadgets and changed the application paths. That's probably the wrong way to do it, if you'd care to give it a look:
