    Changing froma redirected Start Menu

    I have been into a small primary school today (not one of my normal ones, usual staff off long term sick) and they are using redirected start menus for staff. Worked fine for a long while but more and more of the staff now have laptops. The issue is that if staff install software while away from the network then they cannot see the shortcuts when on the network.

    I know i can add the shortcuts tot he programs folder on the network but with different staff from different subjects installing all sorts of software this is becoming a right mess. Some users get icons grey out (because they are not installed) and it look bad now.

    If i stop the redirection and remove the setting from GPO what will happen.

    Will they just get nothing or if the setting is removed will they pick up whats in the 'all users' folder on the local laptop?

    You can set folder redirection so it reads the All users folder as well I have had it setup like that on test machines.
