Allow users to delete icons on Windows 7
Posted on 2010-11-08
I am upgrading our office computer from Windows XP to Windows 7. I just found out normal domain users do not have the rights to delete program shortcuts that were pre-installed with administrative right. The reason is because they are no the owner of the file, and they have have no permission to remove them.
I want to allow them to delete those shortcut icons, is there anyway to give them the right? I read from a website that illustrated an example, but I find when I run those commands, i still get access denied.
attrib -h c:\Users\Public\Desktop
Icacls c:\Users\Public\Desktop /grant “TEST.com\Domain Users”:M /T
attrib +h c:\Users\Public\Desktop
Anyone can offer any suggestions? thanks very much
