Deploy Windows 7 Taskbar Pinned Icons by Group Policy..

Post by ManU » Mon Feb 22, 2010 1:50 pm

Windows 7 taskbar pinned icons are stored in the following locations:

File System:
%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

Registry:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband]

To deploy it, you can perform the following steps:

1. Configure Pinned items on a Windows 7 system as a reference computer.

2. Export Reigstry Key to pinned.reg file:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband]

And copy items in the "%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar" to a shared folder.

3. Create a logon script to deploy the registry keys and copy the corresponding files.

Please note that the “%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned” folder is only created after a user has pinned an icon to the taskbar. In the logon script, you will need to create the “%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar” folder if it does not exist.
Thanks
