Task Bar icons won't launch app with redirected folders


  • Have a strange one. Deploying Windows 10 enterprise to new build machines and I'm finding that some Taskbar icons won't launch. Spent much time investigating an found this

    Local profile works fine - pin to taskbar and launch no problem

    The client uses folder redirection GPO to redirect appdata to users H Homedrive - then it doesn't work. You can pin and see the icon created and see the shortcut create in H drive \\appdate\roaming\..\internet explorer\quick launch\user pinned\taskbar, but if you try to start the item nothing happens

    If the icon is an advertised shortcut - like Word, Excel PowerPoint it DOES launch. Non-advertised doesn't

    Can anyone give me some advice please?
