Hello,

We have 10 users to connect to 2008R2 TS and all use the same application( MS Great Plains 10.0). Some of these user's use dual screens and others don't.

My problem is that sometimes a when a user, (let's say one who uses a single monitor) opens the application, the app will not display for them as it is off screen, and they would have to right click on the application in the task bar and click on move to drag it to their screen.  Also if one user delete an icon from the Start Menu it also removes from all.

They all have their own local profile, so I'm not sure why changes in one users enviroment is making changes in others.

Thanks

This sounds as if the users have administrative rights on the terminal server (everyone will disencourage this). On a ts, as on every windows machine starting from nt, there is a start menu for each user and also a start menu for all users, which can be seen by all users but only be modified by admin users. Most applications install there icons in the all users start menu / desktop. If a user with administrative rights removes these, they disappear for all users.

Thanks,

You are correct they did have admin rights to the TS. I have removed the Admin permission and just gave them user permission. Do you think this will also effected the position of the application? One user moved the application to their secondary screen, and it affected the rest of the users.

I'm not 100% sure about this. Anyways, you can solve this problem by copying the application shortcuts to the users private desktop and remove them from the desktop for all users. Thus, every user can handle his own shortcuts.
