    Is there anyone who can tell me how do I disable Print Screen Tab of the keyboard from the Group Policy to be enforced on a set of users? If there is any alernative way then let me know about it as well. Thanks.

    I will tell you a method on how to disable print screen. You need to copy and paste the below text, which is written in bold, to notepad:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Keyboard Layout

    "Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,04,00,00,00,2A,E0 ,37,E0,00,00,37,E0,00,00,54,00,00,00,00,00

    After that you need to rename the notepad to DisPriSc.reg or any text that you may want, but be sure to have .reg extension to it. After that save it in your computer and then double click on it to have it merged in the regkey. The print screen will be disabled then.

    You can also use the below VBS Script to disable print screen:

    'Disable Print Screen Function
    const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
    strKeyPath = "SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Keyboard Layout"
    strComputer = "."
    BinaryValueName = "Scancode Map"
    iValues = Array(&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H03,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H37,&He0,&H00,&H00,&H54,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00)
    Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
    disablePS = oReg.SetBinaryValue(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath,BinaryValueName,iValues)
