Ok I have had a search an i am sure it can be done. I need to be able to rediret the faverates folder. The reason being the teachers are getting annoyed at students deleting and messing with faverates when they shoud be going to the addres they gave them. I know the reg key is [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]
is it possable to change it via a vbs at login to something like this
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]
this changes the key from %USERPROFILE%\Favorites to \\server\class faverates.
I am sure there is a way to do it with a vbs or such like
Note that you should only need to set the first value; the "shell folders" is there for compatibilty with some obscure and obsolete programs -see http://blogs.msdn.com/oldnewthing/ar.../03/55532.aspx for more info (which also points out that you shouldn't use either key directly but from vbscript it's hard not to!)
I've used the ADM template, and it appears to be working a treat. I was advised to set this up as a separate GPO (called IE Favourites Redirection) and then link it to where I wanted it, which is what I did. We are redirecting Favourites to within our redirected My Docs, and after a bit of experimenting I found that %HOMESHARE%\My Documents\Favourites worked as the setting. Hope this helps someone.
