    gpo prefs favorites wont delete

    We are pushing ie favs out via prefrences.
    This works.

    If I rename the favourite it applies at next login.
    But where we have a user that has a shortcut and should be staff only and apply targeting to staff security group. the student will still have the staff only shortcut. When it should just be staff that now get that.

    hope that makes sense.

    Curious, where have you targeted the shortcut to be? I made this error with one that I was putting out I applied it to "All Users Desktop" which meant that whilst it only applied when the member of staff logged on, that it was then left there when they logged off. Might just be worth checking you're putting it into the right place.

    Ok, well that's the right place for individual ones.

    Second thing to check, how are you applying the shortcut to staff only? Is it by security groups that the GPO it's a part of applies to, or are you using the targeted method on the 'Common' tab for the shortcut?

    We are targeting at a staff security group.
    If I change name with replace it makes the change.
    Seems only way is to use the delete pref option. But that starts to get messy with multiple prefs per item.
