GPO Preferences - How to change order of Drive Maps

    Question

  • We have created a GPO to map drives for our users utlizing the GPO Preferences Drive Maps functionality. Everything is working great, we have about 20 drive maps. However, I would like to change the order of the drive maps, but when I right-click a drive map, select All Tasks, the options to Move Up / Move Down are greyed out. What gives?

  • Which OS are you using?
    I do not see a "All task" context menu when clicking on a drive map in Windows 2008....

    Anyway, what about using the green up and down arrows located on the right corner of the toolbar?

  • Yep, the green up and down arrows work. I am running the Windows 7 RSAT tools (on Windows 7). I will check GPMC on W2K8 to see if there is a difference in the context menus.

    Thank you!

  • Hi,

    Windows Server 2008 doesn’t have All Task menu. Based on my test, in Windows Server 2008 R2, in the following two situations, the Move Up/Move Down buttons are greyed out:

    1.    If the item are in the middle, not the first one and not the last one. We can only use Green button to move up/down. I will report this problem to product team. If there is any update, I will post here. 
    2.    If multiple items are selected. We cannot use Green button to move up/down.

    Thanks.
