Is there a GPO to disable moving icons into the quick launch in Windows XP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a GPO that will stop users from adding icons to the quick launch in Window XP? I have software installations that will not upgrade when the program icon has been moved to the quick launch versus the desktop.

    I found information for Vista and Windows 7 located here (but not for XP):  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee617162.aspx

    Thanks, Kevin

  • Hi is it this group policy you need? (bit of a guess):

    HKCU\Admin templates\Desktop

    option : prevent adding, draggin, dropping and closing the taskbar toobars ?

    Prevents users from manipulating desktop toolbars.
