I want to remove the start menu / items from the start menu for RDP users only. Active Directory is setup. I tried to modify the default group policy, but it applied for administrator as well.

I assume 'Administrator' is a member of the Remote Desktop Users group in AD?

If so, I would create a separate GPO rather than modifying the default > Create a new group in AD  > Give group RDP permissions > add the users you want the GPO to effect > Apply GPO to group created

Best Regards,

I copied the default policy, added only the REMOTE DESKTOP USERS group to the security filter. Ran gpupdate and it's still applying to the administrator. I checked the group and administrator is not there.
