Create same desktop for all users in OU
Posted on 2016-10-09
Have a client that would like the user's in the OU to have all the same desktop view. All clients are Windows 7. We'd like just to have the icons for a few apps like Office and Firefox and a few URLs. We don't want users to be able to save to the desktop. This is a mix of new and existing user accounts, and nothing saved on the desktop currently is necessary (extra programs they don't need to see). So we'd like the GPO to essentially remove all the icons and add the ones that we want. But I know the icons vary and creating a delete policy for every possibility is not administratively efficient. Is there any way to do this by GPO so that the Desktop is wiped clean and they just get the icons we want them to have?
