    Start Menu Redirection

    I am in process of having a go a Start Menu redirection. Now I have managed to get the start menu redirected. I have created a hidden share with permissions to let everyone have read only access. The redirection works, but I have a problem. The Start Menu is not only in programs, but also duplicated above programs where the windows update and windows catalogue short cuts are.

    Like this



    Anyone have any ideas?

    Have you made a subfolder called Programs under the redirected folder?

    so \\server\share\startmenu\Programs ?

    It needs the Programs folder.

    Can you attach a screen shot of the group policy box where you have put the redirected startmenu folder path in, and also a screenshot of your folder structure from within Windows Explorer, with folders expanded?

    You need to remove the all users start menu in AD.

    Its the remove common programs group from start menu. Found under admin templates > start menu.

    I'm sure your redirection folder is wrong, needs to be set to \\mmserver\redirection$\startmenu instead of \\mmserver\redirection$\startmenu\programs

    This solved it for me. I only wanted to show the things I selected on the start menu...
