    User Folder

    I would first like to say sorry if this has allready been answered, however i dont seem to find it with the limited knowledge i have with windows 7 at the moment. I am new to the forums however i have been using you all for little tips and trick for awhile now and i have to say what you lot come up with is amense!. Anyhow we have just upgraded to Windows Server 2008 R2 and 2 of our suites have had there computers upgraded which of course came with windows 7. We are currently in the learning process and have managed to lock down most of the system, however we have a very small but stupid little issue with user folders.

    We are trying to remove un-needed folder like Saved Games, Contacts, Desktop, Favourites, Downloads, Links, and Searches however i cannot find anyone else who wants todo this. I have tryed a lot of ways to get rid and every time its either broken windows or just made windows un usable. Is there anyone else who has achived this and if so how? Thanks in advance

    Way I have set mine up, is to remove the users folder on the desktop and make a new shortcut direct to the users network documents. You need to have your users network share mapped has a network drive to do that. Once that is none, you can just make the shortcut direct to the letter of the mapped drive you set


    Hope that helps

    How did you remove the user folder, via prefrences or just delete?

    Thats ok but i just cant seem to figure it out why microsoft have allowed this to happen, when going into user files it is giving the users the ability to do something wrong!
