Windows 10 Group Policy Preferences for Start Menu Shortcuts getting access denied


  • Hi All,

    I have a Windows 10 Group policy (Users) and have Preferences to add several shortcuts to the Start menu and all of them are getting an Access Denied error when the policy is applied and you guessed it there is nothing added to the start menu.  I have all of the items checked to "Run in logged-on users's security context".  I have the network locations to have Authenticated Users and the group of folks this will apply to having Read, List, and Execute access on the share and all folders.

    The error I am getting is: Event 4098, Group Policy Shortcuts

    The user 'Phone' preference item in the 'Staff Win 10 {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}' Group Policy Object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070005 Access is denied.' This error was suppressed.

    It doesn't tell where it is being denied which is very frustrating.  Has anyone seen this, do you have a fix?
