    Re: double clicking on the start menu

    I just redirect the start menu to the "K:\" drive. Unused so it's fine for this purpose. In the drive mapping registry edit in the logon script I hide the drive from my computer. Even if they do double click the start menu and then click on up, they simply get to "My Computer".

    cheers
    Is your redirected start menu at C:\temp? It's probably better to put it in a network location, share it, and them map a drive to the location. You can then hide the mapped drive in Windows.

    I just recently found edugeek .. what a find!
    First post saying thanks so much for this custom adm. Great idea.

    I came across this start menu issue about a month ago and have been coming back to it since.
    I created a custom adm last night but i wasn't really happy with it, and i think this is a better idea.
    I followed the idea of removing a couple of entries in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\open - which is ok but i was not happy in case of knock-on effects later on, as it removes Open option for folders. Tho at first testing it does seem to effect only the start menu ... but!

    I'll check out this adm on Monday Many thanks!

    Hi

    Sorry to dig this thread up, but i've tried the ADM way of trying to fix this problem...but it hasn't made any difference. I'm pretty sure thats its something i'm doing wrong....and i'm kinda hoping someone can steer me right.

    So, in my test OU...i've re-directed the start menu (using the usual way of doing it in AD). I've then added in the new ADM file and enabled all 3 of the policy's to the thier default value (c:\temp)

    Is this all i need to do? or am i missing out a key step?

    Thanks

    Aaron

    Did you copy the adm file into the domain controllers INF directory first before importing it. I have known this happen before when it looks like settings should be applied but they aren't on stations.
