Hi,
 
 How can I remove some of these icons on user desktops on Terminal Server (W2008 R2)?
 I tried to delete them by logging into the TS using admin account and opening Desktop folder under "C:\Users\%Username%\Desktop", I don't see any icon there.
 I also checked "C:\Users\Default\Desktop", but nothing there either.
 Of course, when the user tries to delete them, it says "You don't have a permission ...".
Can you help?

That link discusses Windows 2003 Server. I have Windows 2008 R2 Server.

Upon further reading of the link you provided, it refers to C:\Users\Public\Desktop.
When I removed or added icons from that folder, they disappeared from their Desktop screen. Conversely when I added icons to that public desktop folder, they appeared on users desktop screens.

Thank you for providing the solution.
