Read only desktop in XP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Is there a supported way in Windows XP SP3 of stopping users from saving files to the desktop? We have a customer who wants this implementing.

    The users have roaming profiles, and the desktop is not excluded.

    I've tried changing the ACL on the folder already, but it errors on logon and loads with a temp profile (which has write access to the desktop).

    I've seen some stuff about folder redirection, but this is something we'd prefer to avoid if possible.
