I have 10 users that logs on to windows terminal server through RDP.
I would like to have:
 user1 will able to see just the icon1 related to application1 no more
 user2 will able to see just the icon1 related to application2 no more
 user3 will able to see just the icon1 related to application3 no more

etc...
how do I do that?
any way to do it without logon scripts???

thanks

do not creat all the icons on the desktop. instead create only one icon for each user

1- so this way the user1 can not see the desktop of user2 or user 3. Correct??

2- I wonder what the TS profile tab located in the user account properties is for?


thanks

for each user you can define the way TS can work e.g. logon time for session, idle time limit and idsconnected session beheviour etc under user properties TS profile tab

I meant Profile path.
Is this in order to make each user that logs on to the TS server to load his profile from a certain share? so that this share can be backed up later?

yes, you can specify the path for each user and that can be backedup later also.

if path for each user is different then do not use %username% instead use the actual username
