How to modify user terminal server desktop
Posted on 2014-12-10
We are moving from server 2003 to server 2012R2... also using remote desktop. Have an issue regarding the remote desktop.
I have found that when a program is installed on the server as administrator, the program the is available to "ALL" users desktops. We do not want that to happen, we have a few programs we want to run in remote desktop that are very confidential and for just a limited number of users. I tried to just delete shortcuts on user's that did not have a need for these programs however, it deletes for all, even if I log in as a user with no admin privileges.
I have done some reading, and think there needs to be some group policies set to make things work the way we need it to; however, I am clueless as to how to proceed.
In your answer, you can be as "techie" as you would like because I will be forwarding the info to my IT guy. He was the one that initially said we could "probably" use group policies; however, he admits to NOT being a terminal server expert
Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.
