Group Policy Objects

I am working with Group Policy objects on Windows Server 2008.  The object I am using only allows the users to see what I want them to see in control panel by listing the associated System32 "cpl" file that I add to the GPO.  I want these users both Vista and Windows 7 to only see the Printers and Faxes icon in control panel.  I cannot find a "cpl" file associated with Printers and Faxes so I am not sure what I could put into the GPO that would make this happen.  I tried Microsoft.Printers and that did not work.   Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Hey,

The name of the CPL is Microsoft.Printers. This is the new name in Windows 7. It should be added to the "Show only the specified Control Panel items" policy. Do make sure to add the GPO to a users OU because this is a user setting.

The user I am having an issue with is Windows Vista.  Would that make a difference?

It works on the Windows 7 machines perfectly.

Could be that the name in Vista was different (which might just be the case). W7 and Server 2008 uses the microsoft.printers.

Great job!  In Vista it is just Printers.  All users in this group policy object only see Devices and Printers or Printers when they click on control panel!!!  Thanks for your help with this matter!!!
