Change the default state of Guest Account

Hi lads,

Setting up the Guest account on my laptop .
On the desktop are links to programs which I want to remove . How can I do this ?

I have tried going to windows explorer and deleting them as Admin but only one shortcut shows up when in fact there are like 12 actually there when you login as Guest.

All help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,
Dave

You need to move those items out of the "All Users" account.

Go to C:\Users\All Users\Desktop

and either delete or move the programs that you don't want visible in the Guest account.

Note: you may have to edit the Desktop folder permissions before you can make any changes. Just right-click on the Desktop folder, select Properties, then click the Security tab. Highlight the "Everyone" line, click on "Edit", say Yes to the UAC prompt that appears, put a tick in the box that says Allow Full Control (top line, left tick box), click Apply.
