IE Page Setup in Citrix

Posted on 2005-04-27
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
We need to make a change to IE Page Setup on all our Citrix servers so it is applied to all users. Specifically we want to expand our Page Setup width margins from 0.75 to 0.25 so that we can print the entire page (otherwise the right side of the page is cut off.) Since I am an administrator I can apply this change on the servers and subsequently launch any of our Citrix apps and see that the new setting has been applied.

However if I ask other users to try and launch apps with their network id (they are not administrators) they still see the 0.75 setting. I even tried deleting their profile on the server and they are still seeing the 0.75 setting.

Any ideas how I can make 0.25 setting stick to all users profiles?

    IE printer margin settings are user-specific. So it won't help if you set them as an admin because it will only affect your account.

    If you look at the registry you'll see under  

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PageSetup

    "header"="&w&bPage &p of &P"

    Here Windows/IE stores its margin settings.

    There are a couple of ways to do registry settings for every user:

    1) if you use .bat/.cmd logon script you could integrate this into your script using reg.exe or regedit.exe
    2) if you use VBS as logon script you can use VBS to manipulate the registry directly

    If they are all new users, meaning the never have logged on or you can delete their existing profiles you could add these settings to the default user (use regedt32 or regedit and load the NTUSER.DAT located under C:\Documents and Settings\Default User, change/add the setting and !don't forget! unload this NTUSER.DAT).

    Let me know if you need further help.
