Server 2012 RDS – unpin server manager and powershell from taskbar

Remember this will only work for NEW users; those users who have already logged onto the RDS server, this will not apply so you will need to delete the local profiles.

Create new GPO

Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > File System -> Add New..

Add these entries –

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Windows PowerShell\Windows PowerShell.lnk

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Windows PowerShell\Windows PowerShell (x86).lnk

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools\Windows PowerShell ISE.lnk

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\System Tools\Windows PowerShell.lnk

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools\Server Manager.lnk

Remove Creator Owner and Users – propagate changes

Link GPO to RDS OU

GPupdate /force
