UEV - Pinned Task Bar Icons RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is it possible to use UEV to sync pinned taskbar items and not the start menu?

    The issue is we have several different images across the network and they don't the same software so Roaming the start menu would hide programs in some cases

    Also when I did manage to roam the taskbar it had blank white icons

  • Hi,

    I don't know how to help you, but with me the quick launch folder on win 10 isn't even syncing... 

    how did you sync the quick launch?

  • Found a way to sync the quick launch icons:

    Sync both the folder and the regkeys... 

    <Processes>
        <ShellProcess/>

      <Settings>
        <PreventOverlappingSynchronization>false</PreventOverlappingSynchronization>
        <Registry>
            <Path Recursive="false" DeleteIfNotFound="false">Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband</Path>
