Customizing start menu

By msfiroudis ·
Hi,
I have a winnt4.0 platform w/95&98 clients..I would like to create a universal start menu..So they all have the same start menu.. I know through the system policy editor I could point it to a directory where the start menu would be located..But I don't know how to create a custom start menu.. Any help would be appreciated..Thanks in advance.

Customizing start menu

by Parbo In reply to Customizing start menu

To create your startmenu click on start-settings-taskbar & startmenu-startmenu programs-advanced (or either add / remove). from here you can customize you menu and the startmenu is located in the windows\Start Menu folder. you can copy this folder to the different systems.

Hope this helps.

Customizing start menu

by Joseph Moore In reply to Customizing start menu

I can think of one additional thing to try. It is a little crazy, but it should work.
If your 98 boxes use logon scripts once they connect to your NT network, you could have the Start Menu tree in your NT PDC's Netlogon shared folder. Have the logon script copy the Start Menu onto the 98 machines, overwriting the local 98 copy. Just put the entire path in the script.

It is possible to copy entire directories from Netlogon onto client machines, so I don't see why this would not work.
Personally, I would use XCOPY to do the copy job, since you could add the /E /C /H /R switches. I don't remember if 98 supports XCOPY, but you could also put it in the Netlogon share folder.
Just an idea.
