MAking Folder similar to All Users Folder

I am new to Active Directory but have a very good understanding of GPOS and Users and Groups.
My question there is an All Users folder that I can set Shortcuts and such into to force Desktops to look certain ways. Is there a way to make a folder for a OU that I have setup that that will allow me to add or remove shortcuts and Quicklaunch items from that folder and have the OU use that folder instead of All users. Basically I want to make Default folders for certain groups that control their desktop and start menus.

Hi,

if you want users to use ponly desktops and start menus that they arent allowed to change you could do two things. one use folder redirection to point their desktop and start menu folders to ones where they dont have write permissions, only read permissions.

or you could set these users up with mandatory profiles whereby they will have standardised desktops etc

If you google mandatory profiles or folder redirection you should be able to find lots of information on the subjects.
