Windows Server 2012 RDS RemoteApp Network Folders

Hello,

I am running 3 Windows Server 2012 servers with RemoteApp installed. Server 1 is the RD Gateway, RD Web Access, RD Licensing, and RD Connection Broker. Server 2 and 3 are RD Session Hosts.

Question

How do I allow users to open network folders using the RD Web Access website, but not see the pane on the left of the window that allows them to select local resources on the RD Session Host?

- The pane on the left side that I am referring to, has a "Favorites" section, and under it it has "Desktop", and "Downloads", under that there is a "Library Section" that has "Documents", "Music", "Pictures", "Videos", etc.. Finally, there is a section called Computer, and the folders listed on there are the local C drive on the Session Host, as well as what ever CD image is mounted at the time. I want to only display the contents of the network drive that I am pointing to.

The UNC path that I use is: C:\Windows\Explorer.exe /root,\\server\path

Hi jmanishbabu,

"Map the Network Drive to the below path"?

Below path?

Also, the link you sent me are instructions on how to set-up the RemoteApp capability, but there aren't specifics there on how to map network drives without a pane. Can you point me to the specific section?

Thank you.
I meant to Map the Network Drive that you are pointing on the Network Location  . Map this drive to a Local Drive and this can be seen listed under the My computer session.

 Mapping Network Drive --> My Computer --> Right Click--> Map Network Drive --> Drive Letter and the Drive Path..

Hi jmanishbabu,

I want the exact opposite result, I don't want the drives or folders to show on the side of the window at all when I click on this one specific network folder.

See the screenshot I attached. This only needs to apply when I open C:\Windows\Explorer.exe /root,\\server\path

Thank you.
