Show printers on start menu
Is there a GP setting to force the start menu to show the Printers link, like the XP start menu does?
I know Vista users can right click the start menu, select properties, etc... to show it, but is there a way to force this in GP?
I've googled but can't find anything.

I looked at this and could have swore there was a GPO for this - but I've just had a look through all the GPO's (inc the ones added by CC3) and I can't for the life of me find it.

It's one of things that *should* be there, but isn't. I can't find it, if it is.

I don't think there is a GPO for this, but if you create images and configure a profile using a default user you can set it there and copy that default user profile to all users and in turn all users will look identical.

Thanks. I think this might work. I'll just edit the default user profile in netlogon, rather than creating images.
It's really frustrating that something as basic as this doesn't have a GPO control. Why do MS have to hide the printers?
