I am trying to configure a Windows 7 machine on a domain where multiple users will be logging on. By default Windows 7 pins Internet Explorer, the file browser, and Windows Media player to the taskbar.
Is there a way to edit the applications pinned to the taskbar by default with a new user? I need to not only add certain applications to the default list, but remove the shortcuts for IE and WMP.
I have tried pinning applications to my taskbar then going to my profile's
%userprofile%\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar
and copying it to the Default User's profile, to no avail. The shortcuts seem to travel over but they do not show up on the taskbar. They show up in the folder when a new user logs in but not in the taskbar.
