Force Quick Launch Toolbar to be open for all users

I have 2 group policy settings, Prevent changes to Taskbar and Start Menu settings and Remove access to the context menu for the taskbar, for my Terminal Server 2003 users. The first setting is used to prevent users from adding stuff like the Administrative Tools to the Start Menu, and the second is used to prevent users from accessing Network Places by right-clicking the Start Button and selecting Explore. Users are allowed to use any Toolbars they had opened before the policy went into effect, but there is no way for a new user to access the Toolbars (since the right-click is disabled). In particular I'd like to have the Quick Launch Toolbar open for any user that logs into the Terminal Server, but I cannot find a group policy setting or registry hack to make that happen.

Any ideas?

Hi cogline_100,

Administrative Templates\Start Menu and Taskbar\Force classic Start Menu

From memory i think you have to force classic start menu - could be wrong though

otherwise remove the policy, make the changes you want then add the policy back on - you may have to customised profile to the default user profile when you have it how you like
