  • Start Menu GPO

    Hello Everyone,

    I am wanting to create a policy for client computers that gives them a pre-made start menu.

    Is there a particular item or category inside of Group Policy Management that can help me do that? Or will I have to create a new ADMX file?

    Note:This is Windows Server 2008

    Your help is appreciated

    Thanks,
    Magic112

      You will need to redirect the start menu to a share with the custom one it in.
      This is standard Group Policy: USER CONFIG--POLICIES--WINDOWS SETTINGS--FOLDER REDIRECTION in 2008R2

          Just copy the start menu folder from a machine or user profile and edit it
