Tile Locker is a free and portable tool which allows you to block the rearrangement of tiles and accessing the right-click options. After using this tool, you would be able to block users from unpinning a tile, uninstalling an app, resizing a tile etc. It can be proved very useful for a multi-user system where administrator can block the start screen layout and right click options.

How To Use:

1. Run the program as Administrator.

2. Click on Enable to apply the restriction. You will get a message dialog box. Click OK.

3. Now either log off/sign out you PC or restart explorer.exe (Windows Explorer).

4. That's it! Now you must be seeing that drag-and-drop of tiles is disabled and you can't access right click options of tiles.

If you want to disable this restriction, simply click Disable from the program's interface.

Note: Please note that this program wants administrator rights. So you must run this application in Run as administrator mode in order to apply the restrictions otherwise you will be greeted with an error.

What if I don't want anyone to open and see 'people' or 'mails' tiles. I want a lock for that.

Unpin them from start screen and use them from "All Apps" screen instead.
