I have locked down my terminal server users as per the Microsoft document but there is one features that I want to enable but I can't find them in the GPO. It is the ability to add sites to their favorites.

    Hi johnbowden,

    In your GPO, ensure the below setting is not enabled:

    Windows Components>Start Menu & Taskbar >Remove favorites from start - enable

    Hi johnbowden,

    you cant block that off, its a simple IE task that everyone is allowed to do, you can try playing with the ntfs permissions on the favourites folder but via GPO i have never seen this done
