Is there a group policy to show the Internet Explorer icon on the desktop for
XP machines?
I have disabled 'hide internet explorer icon' but it is still not there when
users log in.


Thanks

Hi,

This is a reg hack. For some reason XP decided that it was nice to
have a clean desktop. The Desktop icons are physically added or
removed in the Display Properties-Desktop - Customize Desktop section.

I created a reg hack to make My Computer, Recycle, IE and My Net
Places showing all the time for all users on XP.

You can either put it in a vbscript or just have it apply as a reg
file.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Exp
lorer\HideDesktopIcons]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Exp
lorer\HideDesktopIcons\ClassicStartMenu]
"{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}"=dword:00000000
