Enable other System Preferences panes

Enable this group policy to add additional panes to the System Preferences panel.

This policy will only take effect when "Limit items usage on System Preferences" is enabled.

Preference pane applications are actually collections of files inside a directory (called bundles). Inside the "Contents" directory of every preference pane app is the info.plist file, and inside that file is the key "CFBundleIdentifier" that identifies the preference pane app. You need to use the value for this key when adding a preference pane app.

Generally, installed third party preference panes can be found in /System/Library/PreferencePanes, /Library/PreferencePanes or ~/Library/PreferencePanes. Use the 'defaults' command to get the value.

For example: to get the value of the QuickTime pane, use this command:
"defaults read /System/Library/PreferencePanes/QuickTime.prefPane/Contents/info CFBundleIdentifier";
which returns the value
Click 'Add' and enter this value to display the QuickTime icon in the System Preferences pane.

Once enabled, this group policy takes effect when users log out and back in.
