I have a Windows 10 1709 system I am working on imaging. During the setup, I created the Start Menu layout I wanted, exported the StartLayout.XML file to the local hard drive, then set the Group Policy object (User Configuration \ Admin Templates \ Start Menu \ Start Layout) to force it for users.
When I create a new user for testing, the tiles do not load correctly. If I log out and back in a second time, it works like a charm. Below is what it looks like on first log in for a new user:
I have deleted the test user, recreated, and the problem still exists. I followed the recommendations of using
DesktopApplicationID entries as opposed to
DesktopApplicationFilePath entries as recommended by Microsoft.
Because I want this to work for many systems, and I'm without an Active Directory setup, I need this to work locally. With some of the computers, the user profiles are wiped after each log out, so it must apply as soon as the user logs in.
What can I do to fix this?
