Editing the List of Visible Menu Entries for IBM iAccess

You can simplify the menu of an IBM iAccess client session by removing items from the menu tree. You also can restore the original menu.

Removing Menu Items

  1. In the IGEL Setup, go to System > Registry > sessions > iaccess[NUMBER] > options > deletemenus (Registry key: sessions.iaccess[NUMBER].options.deletemenus). [NUMBER] is the instance number of the session you want to configure; 0, for instance, stands for the first session, 1 for the the second session, etc.
  2. In the List of visible menu entries, using the mouse, mark the line with the entry you want to delete:
  3. Press the backspace [←] or delete [Del] key.

    The menu item is deleted:

    If you delete a menu item that has subitems, the subitems will be invisible, too.

  4. To remove further menu items, repeat steps 2 and 3. 
  5. Click Apply or Ok.
  6. Start or restart the IBM iAccess client to check your changes.
