    Question Force Icon View in Folders as Default Via GPO

    Hi

    Does anyone know how I can force the "icon" view for folders via GPO? I know how to do this normally, but need to try and force this out with one particular student who needs this view on her roaming profile.

    I have disabled this option via the GPO so that the students cannot mess with the other settings so enabling it isn't really an option.

    Thanks

    I've never managed to successfully get windows to stay in a particular folder view within a domain environment.

    To my knowledge there aren't any GPOs that can fix folder views permanently, so either a registry hack or a custom GPO is potentially what you'd be looking at.
