When disabling multiple items:

In order to disable multiple items, add the feature numbers. The sum will be used as the registry data.

For example, when disabling "Refresh" is 1 and "Printers" is 32768, your number for DisableFeature would be 32769 (32768+1)

Note: If disabling the Client.NET Desktop Shortcuts Module in ProfileUnity 6.8.0 and higher, the module will be disabled completely and NOT revert to the previous KiX scripting method. This will render the Shortcuts Module non-functional, so it is not recommended. If using ProfileUnity 6.8.0 and above, do not use this "Client.NET Desktop Shortcuts Module DisableFeature" value.
