When we set up our terminal server we locked it down.  There is an issue now where users can not add favorites to Internet Explorer.  Do not remember which setting affects that.  Any suggestion?

Thank you.

This is probably what you need: http://www.ietips.net/articles/favorites-bar-option-in-ie8-is-grayed-out/


The favorites bar settings are here: Windows Components\Internet Explorer
Reference: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc985351.aspx

To add favorites via GPO you can do it here
1. Select the GPO you created
2. Navigate to: user configuration > windows settings > internet explorer manager > url's
3. Select 'Favorites and Links'
4. Add each of your desired Favorite Bar links into the category of 'Links'
5. OK and exit
