Windows Server 2008 R2 disable known folders

Hi There
I'm setting up a Windows Server 2008 R2 RDS environment (with Citrix). Now I want to disable the known folders like library, music, pictures and so on through GPOs. I found an linke with the ID's and I guess the canonical names:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd378457(v=VS.85).aspx
I entered a few ID's in the policy and linked it to the server (see attached document).

Then I logged in with a new profile (first time login) and the folders are still available (see attached document).
I checked already the registry, and the policy has been applied.

Any ideas?

Hi

Thanks for your quick replies. But I would like to fix it through the known folders GPO. There are not only the Library folder which I would like to hide. And the other reason is, I would like to be independent from direct server changes. With Policies we have a much faster deployment procedure.

Thanks

in the link there's an example to hid music folder , you can write scriot for other folders and makeit .bet populate it with GPO everytime a user log into the machine .

You can find these Group Policy settings under

 User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Start Menu and Taskbar.
