Windows 7: Network Drives and Users

21 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
Network Drives and Users

Hi There,

I have two questions today.

1) Depending on the group each user is a member of. How can I add start menu items. For example: UserA is a member of a group called developers and when they log in they see all the items in All Users and as a member of developer they will see related propgrams. I have disabled personal start menu items.

2) When a user logs onto the system how can I connect multiple network drives without each user going through the map network drive wizard.

Is there a peice of software that can do this. If so i would like to know.

That piece of software would be called Active Directory. Group policy will do everyting you have asked for and more. Are you running in a domain environment?
