GPO to redirect desktop folder -- now new files on desktop do not appear until refresh
Posted on 2006-05-30
I have a Group Policy that redirects a few user's 'My Documents' and 'Desktop' to a server drive.
When the user is in Microsoft Word, Outlook, or whatever (actually, doesn't matter what program they are using), if they wanted to save a document on their desktop, they save the file, but then when they go to their desktop the file is not there. In fact a user can just right click on the desktop and select New Text File -- and not see anything.
Well, actually, it IS, but they have to press F5 (Refresh) in order to get it to show up.
Needless to say this is quite annoying.
So ... how do i get files to show up on the desktop without having to press F5 all the time?
