  1. RDS - Lockdown: GPO "Hide these specified drives in My Computer"


    Dear all,Following GPO is in use for terminal servers:Hide these specified drives in My ComputerDrive c is hidden.Unfortunately the setting does not work completely and users are still able to view drive c.For example if you use MS Word and save a document. If the user chooses "save as" and then "this pc", the full path is displayed in the address bar.With this full path the user can navigate through the complete folder structure and save documents in the most impossible places.The GPO "restrict access to specified drives" prevents navigation, but access to folders like desktop and downloads i

    Unable to map to the local drive for RDS services.

    Hi Lee,



    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are looking for information regarding Remote Desktop Services configuration and hiding local drive policies for the user.

    You may want to check the policy settings in the Group Policy Editor(gpedit.msc) for
    User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\File Explorer\Hide these specified drives in My Computer



    However, for queries related to Group Policies and Remote Desktop, let me help in pointing you in the right direction. You can post your query in
    TechNet Forums where you will find professionals with expertise on GPO
    and RDP, and that would be the appropriate forum for this query.

    Hide network drive

    Hi Kari and thanks, but I tried that along with GP "User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Explorer > Hide these specified drives in My Computer", but the drive did not show in the list. Starting to look like it can't be done with a mapped drive. *Sad
     
  4. RDS - Lockdown: GPO "Hide these specified drives in My Computer"

    Computer in lockdown

    During installation of windows 10 I arrived at the blue screen which asks for my Outlook/Microsoft password. My computer has been in lockdown on that screen for3 days.

    When I enter my correct password I get an error message saying that my password is incorrect which having checked it on another laptop I know this is not the case.

    My laptop is useless, none of functions work.

    Any one out there got any suggestions?
