gpedit, the registry and batch files
Posted on 2006-05-19
I want to be able to run a batch file on a stand alone windows 2000 machine that will make the default homepage in internet explorer the same for every user even if I create a new user. The only way I've been able to do that so far is to open gpedit, go to user configuration, windows settings, internet explorer maintenance, urls, important urls, then enter the page i want in the homepage url text box. where is this setting saved? i entered a url in gpedit and searched the registry. created a batch file to edit those registry entries then removed the url from gpedit. ran the batch file. it changed the default homepage on every user that currently exists, but when i created a new user, it defaulted that user's page to the microsoft page again. any ideas on how i can do this? Only reason for this is I want to reduce the steps necessary to set up new machines and users.
