  • need help with file system computer gp

    Hello,
    I need a help for making work GP for restricting user to save files on Desktop.
    I found a great suggestion on this forum. But probably doing something wrong with applying it.
    My question is about 2 files mentioned below (pls read first)

    I created 2 txt files with one line in each

    %AllUsersProfile%\Desktop

    %UserProfile%\Desktop

    then, renamed files to . bat and pointed to files from:
    Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / File System

    Not works. What I did wrong?

    Thx.

    You can stop users from saving files or folders directly to the desktop through group policy. If you greate a gp, and go to Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / File System. Then add 2 files,

    %AllUsersProfile%\Desktop

    %UserProfile%\Desktop

    If you accept the default permissions for these, standard users will not have the write permission to these folders. I've added IT to have full control of these just in case, but ordinary bods, no way.

    This is much tidier than using Xcacls and login scripts

    Hi,

    It doesn't say anything in there about renaming those to a .bat file.
    IN Group policy go to the File system section and Right Click and Add file
    In the Folder section type the following %AllUsersProfile%\Desktop and
    %UserProfile%\Desktop (One at a time)
    Then follow the wizard and assign appropriate security permissions.

    Hope it helps
