In my school, there is no reason why student computers should be able to mirror their screen to anything. Yet somehow they have founds ways to do so. I would like to do the following three things, via config profile, policy, or script, if possible:
1. Prevent the shortcut to the Displays system preferences pane from appearing on the Menu Bar. Reason being, even when this system preference pane is disabled, accessing it through the menu bar shortcut takes you to a non-disabled Displays preferences. Same is true with the Sounds pane.
2. Prevent the Displays pane from being accessed via a search in Spotlight. Even when you have Displays hidden on the system preferences pane, and disabled, a student can search for it via spotlight, and it opens and is usable by the students.
3. Permanently disable the ability to Mirror the display to anywhere. Since a student can access the Displays pane no matter what, it would be nice to at least prevent them from mirroring their display.
Any thoughts on this?
@Morningside Look at
title: Allow List,
description: List of MAC addresses of AirPlay destinations that the device is restricted to. If this list is empty, the device can connect to any device.,
However if you set the list to like AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF which is bogus then should effectively stop airplay.
Different way to solve the problem but might work.
