SBS >> let user only use MS Word and print something

Is it possible to make it so a guest user can ONLY use MS Word and print to
a certain printer?

No web access, no being able to go into control panel, no going into My
Computer, no nothing.

Could someone walk me through this? If I recall it wasn't the easiest thing
to do in the world and I might wanna take it in steps.

Pretty please? Thanks.

Bryce.

Don't use "guest" - that should remain disabled. Create a new 'visitor'
/ersatz 'guest' account with the name of your choice.

Group policies are your friend here - but they aren't necessarily the
easiest thing to learn, although it's well worth your while to tackle it.

If you don't want to/can't do that, you could simply set up a standalone PC
with only Word & a cheap-o local printer. Might be easier - it could be a
somewhat old/cruddy box running whatever OS you've got available.

Main Entry: er·satz
Pronunciation: 'er-"säts, -"zäts, er-'; '&r-"sats
Function: adjective
Etymology: German ersatz-, from Ersatz, n., substitute
: being a usually artificial and inferior substitute or imitation <ersatz
turf> <ersatz intellectuals>
- ersatz noun

...although I don't think a fake Guest account is inferior at all, so
perhaps I should have picked an adjective with fewer negative connotations.
