    Start Menu User Link

    What do people do about the user link in the Start Menu?

    When you select it it takes you to a view of all the user folders, but as we are using redirected ones they seem to be pointing at the local folders. So I have a folder full of links that can't be accessed as well as some blank shortcuts I can't get rid of!! Don't mind if it can be edited to point the links to the correct redirected folders but can not seem to work it!! Going round and round in circles at the moment playing with libraries and reg keys!

    Ignore me, what a tube.

    enabling "user config \ policies \ admin templates \start menu and taskbar \ remove user folder link from start menu in" Group Policy solves all my issues..... Well, this one... For now.

    Removed the link . Dissapointed that it also removes the users name from the start menu at same time :-(
