    Where is the location for the windows logon script?


    I am looking for the location for the windows logon script file. I need to compare two script files
    The issue that I am having is that one laptop is not automatically mapping network drives even though the user is in the correct active directory group.
    Another user is in the same group and has the network drive mapped, so I need to compare both logon scripts from both laptops.
    Maybe these scripts can be read or edited in notepad but I need the location if anybody can help?

    Hello Tomcolgan,

    To find the location of a user's logon script, while logged in as the user, run the command:
    net user "%USERNAME%" | find "Logon script"
    or for a domain user,
    net user "%USERNAME%" /domain | find "Logon script"

    You should use the exact command as Pyprohly suggested in bold. Copy and paste it :)

    Then there is no logon script assigned to the user. However, this logon script feature isn't the only method one can go about for executing a script during logon.

    Every user has a Startup folder. Each item in this Startup folder is invoked during a user's logon phase. It's rather informal for a domain administrator to setup user accounts this way, but it does get the job done.

    The location of a user's Startup folder is
    C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
    or the Startup folder for all users on the machine,
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    Try checking those locations for the logon script.

    Found nothing, would you know what the script file is? e.g .bat .exe .ini

    Can you run the commands Pyprohly gave you for the PC/user that does work correctly ?
    If you find the working script, can you copy it to the PC/user (same location) that doesn't work?
    Maybe that will help ???
