I am running a Windows 2000 Server with about 30 clients.  I would like to configure a group policy for users to all have the same links under the favorites menu in Internet Explorer.  I would like to do this so I can easily add links to the favorites list so it will affect all users in active directory.  Thanks

Don't think you can do this with w2k gp......you can probably script it though.

http://www.winguides.com/scripting/ may be a starting point......I'm not an expert at scripting, but I know you can do almost anything with it.

Actually, you can do this through Group Policy.

Open the GP Mgmt Console, create a new policy and look for the following:

User Configuration > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > URL's > Favorites and Links

You'll see the options in there. You can create a new folder to put your custom favorites in, replace fave's that already there, lots of stuff. Works quite well. Check it out and enjoy.

hth,
kris.
