Start Menu Redirection GPO

I was testing out a GPO to redirect my start menu but after that I wanted to restore it to how it was before. I removed the GPO and all that but no matter what I do my start menu wont revert back to how it was.

Anyone have any ideas?

Client is Win7

I figured it out...

HK\CurrentUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

Just restored Start Menu and Programs to their default which are

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu

and

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Did you delete the GPO? if not assign the gpo to that OU again and change the setting to not apply.

Yes it's deleted. It's not that type of policy where disabled is an option. It's a configured/not configured kind of thing. If the GPO is removed and none of the other applied policies configure that setting it's the same thing.

all that does is update the policies from the DC. The policy is already not being applied anymore. That wont do anything

run GPRESULT to see if the deleted GPO is still applying to your machine. In that case you have to create another create another policy with settings to revert changes
