I am working on a project which is highly secure. In the project i want to enable and

disable the various context menu items like (cut, copy, paste, delete) from the menu

in windows 7 using Mouse not the Keyboard.

Various Context menus can be:

1) Desktop Context Menu using mouse
2) File Context Menu using mouse
3) Folder Context Menu using mouse
4) Windows Explorer Root Window Context Menu using mouse
5) Windows Explorer Window Context Menu using mouse

Any idea regarding how to enable and disable the items of context menu of windows 7

using mouse.

Thank you in Advance.

You can't disable context menu items of all other applications. Your approach is wrong. You probably want to prevent the user from doing specific operations. So, for what kind of data should the operations be disabled (file, clipboard, Drag & Drop)? Knowing this, there might be solutions.

Similar questions has been asked in the past. Use the search option with 'disable copy delete'.

You would need a program running in your system that intercepts certain mouse clicks and keystrokes. Take a look at some of these links[^].
