Hi Experts,

I hope you are well?

Does anyone know how to lock down a start panel for terminal server users so as they can only see office application, and other application you pre-approve there, but nothing else via gpo or other means?

What I do is redirect Start menu to a network location (so that all users pick it from one point). Furthermore there I simply use NTFS permissions on the program shortcuts for various AD groups to limit what eople can run/see.

Hi Chlebi,

I've tried a redirection on the start menu but unfortunately they still see more than i want?
I have, using system, restricted the applications that users can run, but still, i'd rather them not see other applications in their start panel?

Did you try to hide items on the network share via permissions (ntfs)? That should work...

Thats the weird thing. Common things like accessories appear there but things like office, citrix and other folders that they can see in their start menu, dont, and as such i cant control them?

Then you must be missing some permissions. If you redirect Start menu to a network location then basically when users click there then the folder where you point to just lists. So in Theory you can have 1-millions items there. Of course users need appropriate share and ntfs permissions to read contents of that share.

Fixed it! i needed to remove permissions from the default start menu location in program data. Soon as i did that it showed only the folders i had in the mapped location
