Windows 10 Startmenu.admx

    Question

  • Hi,

    Will uploading the Windows 10 version of startmenu.admx to the central store break or disable the existing version of the same file? I need to control the Start Menu for Windows 10 and Windows 7.

    Thanks

    No. All settings will stay the same.
    Why do you think startmenu.admx will behave differently to all the
    others you replace aswell?

  • Hi Jason,

    Thanks for your post.

    First, if there are Windows 10 computers in your AD environment, I suggest you download .admx files for Windows 10 on the link below. And install them on Central Store.

    These administrative templates also contain 10 additional ADMX files that are not shipped in the box with Windows 10.

    • Fileserverssagent.admx
    • grouppolicypreferences.admx
    • gamedvr.admx
    • terminalserver-server.admx
    • userdatabackup.admx
    • deliveryoptimization.admx
    • grouppolicy-server.admx
    • mmcsnapins1.admx
    • textinput.admx
    • windowsserver.admx

    the startmenu.admx file is same with Windows 7.

    Will uploading the Windows 10 version of startmenu.admx to the central store break or disable the existing version of the same file?

    >>>It will not bread or disable existing version of the same file. There is a another policydefinitions folder for new version after install admx file of Windows 10 version.

    Best Regards,

    Jay

  • Mark - I am just cautious because I don't want to break existing functionality for other users. Newer versions of Microsoft software have depreciated older features for sake of the newer ones. Thanks

  • Thanks Jay. So, are you saying there are two PolicyDefinitions folders in the store, after installing the Windows 10 templates?

    Thanks

    All Windows Versions from Vista and above use _One_ PolicyDefinitions
    folder. Might be an issue with the selection of the installation target
    directory. If I'm wrong, please correct me.
