Terminal Server GPO

Posted on 2006-05-09

I have a group policy set for the terminal server that disables right clicking.  I would like to enable users to be able to right click.  Also in the policy it is set somewhere to open a new folder on every double click.  For instance I open my computer a folder comes up.  If I click on c drive a new folder comes up.  If you could help advise me how to change these group policy items that would be great.

    Not sure what exactly the problem is, but to enable specific user policies on specific computers, you need to place the computers (in your case the terminal servers) in a separate OU and enable Loopback Processing. The reason to place them in a separate OU is because you can only have 1 loopback policy on a OU.
    Loopback Processing must be enabled in the computer section of the policy. More info can be found here
