Hello.

I have a Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server.  This is a new build.  Every new user that logs in has the Server Manager and Windows Power Shell icons pinned to the task bar.

I don't want users seeing these.  How do I unpin them for everyone or disable the task bar from being pinned or uninstall these programs?  Anything to keep general users from seeing these.

Thank you.

Yes you can use GPO to acommplish that. Here is URL http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278295

Open GPMC>Create a GPO Object>Edit user config>Administrative Template>Start menu and Taskbar

user config>Administrative Template>Windows Components>Windows Power Shell
user config>Administrative Template>Windows Components>Windows Installer
Computer Config>Administrative Tools>System>Server Manager

Hope you can do the rest.
Regards,
Raihan

If I log in as local administrator and unpin the icons, they are no longer pinned for other users.
