Windows 2008 Terminal Server Desktop Icons revert to left after refresh or login
Posted on 2012-08-15
I have an issue with one of my customers that has me stuck.
It is a 10 User network with a SBS 2011 server acting as DC, Exchange etc. and Windows 2008 RDS server, which they log onto via dumb terminals.
Only one user is having an issue where if he moves Desktop icons to suit his requirements, they move back to the left hand side in alphabetical order, when a Desktop refresh is done or they log off and on: There is no mandatory profile and I have tried setting this User as an Administrator but no difference. I have tried every possible combination of settings, as far, as arranging Desktop icons go but it is always the same result.
There is no difference between this User and any other as far as GPO membership or rights go and am starting to think it is a User setting in the registry that is causing this?
Also, adding files, shortcuts etc. to the Desktop works, it is just the arrangement that is the problem.
