We are installing a Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop server. We want to deploy the Explorer.exe as a link to the users to a folder or mapped network drive (Explorer.exe H:). But  we want to hide access to  Libraries - Documents / Music / Pictures / Videos and the Desktop / Downloads and Recent Places. All we want to see is Computer with the mapped drives.

We are looking for a GPO setting for this.
