I want to disable AirDrop so that my users do not have access to it but I have not been able to find a place to disable this feature.

The closest thing i have found is this thread but I don't know where to disable it.

Could someone explain to me how to do this?

  • What do you mean by "my users"? Non-administrative users on your computer?
