[THIN] Re: Hiding My Computer Icon

There is no such setting (that I've found) in Win2K Group Policy.You can add
the setting yourself by importing a template into your policy:
 
- Paste the following into notepad
 
CLASS USER
 
  CATEGORY "Custom Settings"
 
    POLICY "Remove My Computer from Desktop"
      KEYNAME "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\NonEnum"
      VALUENAME "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"
      VALUEON  NUMERIC 1
      VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
    END POLICY
 
  END CATEGORY ; Custom Settings

- Save the file with the extension ADM (redfish.adm, for example).
- For Win2K AD, open your policy and import the template
- For NT4 policy, just add the template to the policy.

Hi Jack:
 
Actually, I needed the users to see SOME icons, so the policy that removes
all icons won't work for me.  What I really need is something that will hide
just the My Computer icon.

Group policy will accomplish this.  We hide all desktop icons from our
students.

Hello Everyone:
 
I can't seem to find a way to hide the My Computer icon on a user's desktop.
Does anyone know how to do this?  Thanks.
