    is there a way via GP to not allow my users to select the "hide inactive
    objects" toggle under the Task Bar - Notification Area properties?

    Thanks in advance,

    Ken

  2. Hi Ken,

    Thanks for using this newsgroup.

    According to your description, I understand that you want to know if you
    can prevent the users to select the "Hide Inactive Objects" in the task bar
    through group policy.

    Based on my research, we have no policy to disable the user to click that
    button. But we have a workaround fro this issue; we can hide that button,
    so it will not appear at the task bar. You can configure the group policy
    follow the steps below:

    1. Open the "Server Management" and navigate to the Group Policy
    Object Snap in.
    2. User Configuration\Administrator Template\Start Menu and Task
    Bar\Hide Notification Area, you can enable the policy to hide the area.
    3. Run the gpupdate to update the policy.


    I appreciate your understanding on this issue, if you have any further
    issue, please let me know. I am here waiting for your updates.

    Best regards,

    Charles,

    Thanks for the reply, I did see that option when I went searching to see if
    there was a "hide inactive objects" option. This would work fine, but I'll
    have to manually turn off the "hide inactive objects" option on all clients
    prior to publishing the GP hiding the Notification area, right?

    Kind of a huge two step process. Maybe you can carry this suggestion
    forward and see if an option can be written specifically for the "hide
    inactive objects".

    Thanks again,

    Ken

  4. Hi Ken,

    Thanks for updates.

    As my experience, you can just change the default domain policy, it will
    automatically apply to the whole domain client. You do not need to change
    the policy individually.

    Of course, I will forward your request to our development team to see if
    there will be any possibility to change them in the next version.
