I could really use some help with this.
Following the official instructions on technet.microsoft.com, I am trying to deploy a start menu to my windows 10 machines.
Unfortunately, this doesn't work as expected, the start menu is not changing for the user. It is locked, though, which just means that the GPO was actually applied, and I could confirm this using GPRESULT.
Furthermore, I checked the registry, the two registry values
HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\LockedStartLayout DWORD 1 HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\StartLayoutFile String \\domain.local\share\pathtoxml.xml
are set correctly.
The xml file is on a file share, I reference it using the UNC path in the GPO. The "domain users" group has read access to the file. I verified that from a user account.
What else could have gone wrong here?
