Windows 2008 RDS RemoteApps - Need users to Only Open Explorer Shell API to H drive
Posted on 2013-01-18
We have a locked down an RDS environment. Our users are connecting via RDWeb and remote apps. No published desktops.
We have locked down the systems so no libraries, my documents, favorites, my computer, network places, downloads, explorer navigation windows, etc or address bars are shown. We give you your apps via remoteapps, a share accessible through the app for files, and ability to map your default session printers that is it.
The problem we continue to see is an issue when the Explorer Shell API is launched through an app like clicking an ellipsis in a browse to file field it wants to open to the default common location. Not the share drive provided which is the H drive. I have updated common locations to point to H via registry mods and preferences but it still doesn't work.
Any ideas to what needs to be modified in the registry on these RDS hosts? So any time the explorer shell is called it opens to their H drive by default?
