Automatically turning on desktop items in XP

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.group_policy (More info?)

Is there any way in group policy to automatically turn on "my
computer", "my network places", "internet explorer" and "my documents"
to be visible on windows xp desktops? It is annoying to have to make
them visible every time I install a new desktop.

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\NonEnum]
    "{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000
    "{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000
    "{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}"=dword:00000000


    will do My computer, My Network Places, and Recycle Bin.

    At value of 1 hides them.

    Thanks, how would I apply this registry setting with a GPO?
