Enable One Click for all users on Window 2008 R2 Terminal Server

I have a couple terminal servers that I would like all users  to have the Single-Click functionality.  In looking for an answer, I am seeing that it is this way by default and can only find instructions on how to re-enable the double-click functionality for shortcuts.

I do not recall changing this setting after the install, but need to get back the single click ability.  

If I change the Folder Options on a user folder (even admin in the console) it only affects that user.

Does anyone know of a registry entry or GPO that I can use to get this back for my TS farm?

Thanks!

The issue had to do with disabling "Active Desktop" in User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Desktop\Active Desktop.

I saw this referenced in the policy for turning on the Classic Shell to enable the double click option.

The other suggestion was restating what I had already discounted in my research.  It was not helpful in finding the solution but thanks for trying.
