  1. Hi, Thanks for replying. Yes I have that ready just in case we cannot lock down the icon/shortcut. Actually, I found that particular reg doesn't work for me and I have to edit the below instead(but its the same idea). [HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\ClassicStartMenu] Name = {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} Type =REG_DWORD Value = 0 I'd really like to lock down that icon, there must be a way.
  2. Does anyone know of a way to stop users from being able to delete the "Computer" icon on the Windows 7 desktop? We found that some users are deleting it, for whatever reason, and then cannot restore it. I can restore it via a quick reg edit, but we would really like to specify that this icon (and only this one) cannot be removed from the desktop. I know we can lock down the whole desktop icons, but we really only want this single icon to be "set in stone" on the desktop. Users are restricted and not local admins, but the can still delete this icon!!?? thanks Edit: By the way, we would like to resolve this via GPO if possible.
  3. I've a ticket logged with Microsoft. Should I get a solution or advice I'll post it here in case anyone else has this issue.
  4. Hi, thanks for replying. What we want to have happen is a user goes to say www.blahblahstuff.net/sites/webapp1/default.aspx and we have set this as doc mode 5 on the enterprise mode list. It works perfectly and I can confirm they are in the right doc mode. But as soon as they click on a link within that site/webapp(lets say the page is now www.blahblahstuff.net/sites/webapp1/intstuff.html) IE11 changes from doc mode 5(which we set on the enterprise list) to Edge-default mode. So, from what I can see it only honours the very first page and not any sub pages or links. We have tried adding just www.blahblahstuff.net/sites/webapp1/ to the list but then everything is in default-edge mode. Not really sure what's going on. So any help/advice/samples is much appreciated. We do have a test enviro so I can try out anything in safety.
  5. If anyone can help I can provide payment via good vibes and happy thoughts towards them :0)
  6. Hi, Not sure if this should go in this section, but it is a Windows 7 issue with IE11. So, a background. We have IE11(version 11.0.9600) running on Windows 7 64bit and an Enterprise Mode list sitting on our server. We have added a bunch of sites and web app links in here. Initially it seemed that IE11 was not honouring what was on the list, after I took over this issue I could see IE11 is pulling down the list when changed and is in fact honouring what we have on there. The problem is, we have a lot of sites that need to be run in Doc mode 5, but only the first page is actually opening in that mode(it is set to doc mode 5 on the list), any further sub pages are changing to Default-Edge as soon as they are opened. I confirmed this by pressing F12 while on the sites and can see the doc mode change from 5 to Edge when I click out of the main page. Can you add sites into enterprise mode list and have sub pages of that site also honour the document mode selected for the initial page? I have only just started using Enterprise Mode list manager and don't see an option to allow this. I've looked online and can see nothing on this particular issue. Below is a sample of the enterprise mode list(I've changed the sites name for security etc): -<domain> mysiteprojects.whatevergroup.net <path docMode="5">/sites/webapp1/default.aspx</path> <path docMode="5">/sites/webapp2/Brft/default.aspx</path> <path docMode="5">/sites/webappsales/4fu/default.aspx</path> <path docMode="7">/sites/mylearning/Pages/home.aspx</path> So lets look at the webapp1 site. This loads up fine in doc mode 5, but any sub pages change back to default-edge. I know I've gone on a bit, but I really hope someone can make sense of my ramblings and be able to help me out. Thanks,
  7. Hello all, I was hoping that someone might be able to help me out or point me in the right direction. We are currently migrating across to Windows 7(from XP) and are looking to remove as much Adobe software from our site as possible. In Office 2010 there is a option to save any document as a PDF. Great, it works fine for most of our users needs. Now my question is, do we require and sort of license or application agreement from Adobe to have this running on our site at all? Or is it 100 percent covered by our license for MS Office 2010? Is Office using any sort of Adobe engine to output the PDF's or is it completely Microsoft? I think you can see what I'm getting at. Hope someone can help clarify this for me. Thanks
