View Full Version : No rename/delete desktop icons

Is there a way to prevent my NT4 users (who don't use active desktop) from renaming or deleting icons from the desktop? Giving them read-only rights to the desktop folder in their profiles seems to do the trick, but I'm afraid of unforseen problems.

the way we do it here is by putting common icons in the All Users Profile Desktop. Then restricting their access to that. That way they can still put their own files on the desktop but can't screw up the common ones. This is alot easier than implementing mandatory profiles.
Fumbling through the registy since 1998 ;o)
