pretty sure you can do this using group policy in windows 2000 but obvioulsy you would need a domain.
What I think would happen is that links are specified by the domain admin and new ones are added by request.
You could use a roaming profile that way all your favourites, desktop icons etc go with you wherever you log in. Depending on your network and the size of your profile logging in may take some time and network performance may be reduced.
How does IE store favorites/bookmarks? I always thought that they were stored in somewhere like 'c:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data' or similar. Point being, I think they are saved in a folder...correct?
If so, the location for the bookmarks/favorite must be saved somewhere - I'm guessing the registry. So if you could change that on wach computer to reference a network share then all instances of IE would be calling on the same folder.
I don't know if this would work, maybe somebody could try it.
Well I search web for same question and found this forum. the solution I found is from client user's computer HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User ShellFolders
change the favorites location to %LOGONSERVER%\Favorites
I assume that the client's computer has domain controlled setup and you login as a user.
and make sure that HKEY_CRRENT_USER\Volatile Environment\LOGONSERVER value is setup to your server
This works. Basically the computer will saved favorites to the server rather than the client's computer. HOWEVER the problem is when you open the web browser, it opens slow. I mean it takes about 5-10 sec (depends on favorites list) to open IE.
So I'm looking for better way to do this.
Let's share some ideas.
