I am setting up a network for a company, and they want all the computers'
desktops to have a standard toolbar - the QuickLaunch would probably be
fine - with all their basic programs: Word, Excel, Access, QuickBooks and
Outlook. Can this be done with Group Policy, or any other way centrally from
the server? I just don't want to run around to every single computer and
create this toolbar.

Thanks.

Hi Tim,

I understand that you want to customize the Quick Launch bar via Group
Policy. Unfortunately, such a policy doesn't exist. However, you can copy
the shortcuts to a shared folder and have all the users run a logon script
to copy the shortcuts from the shared folder to their personal folder,
specifically, %userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Quick Launch.

You may want to refer to the following KB article for more information on
how to assign script via group policy.

Please feel free to let us know if you have any further questions or
concerns.
