Hello!


How do I create a GPO that adds notepad to the taskbar on all clients?


Do I create an XML-file like the following one:
Code:
     <CustomTaskbarLayoutCollection PinListPlacement="Replace">
        
       <defaultlayout:TaskbarLayout>
        
         <taskbar:TaskbarPinList>
        
           <taskbar:DesktopApp DesktopApplicationLinkPath="%windir%\system32\notepad.exe"/>
        
           <taskbar:DesktopApp DesktopApplicationLinkPath="%ProgramFiles%\Windows NT\Accessories\wordpad.exe"/>
        
         </taskbar:TaskbarPinList>
        
       </defaultlayout:TaskbarLayout>
        
     </CustomTaskbarLayoutCollection>
Or do I export registry entries?

I tried to resolve this for hours and it is driving me crazy!

I am able to add normal desktop shortcuts, but no taskbar icons.

Moreover, on Windows Server 2019 there is no setting called "Start Layout" in the section User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Start Menu and Taskbar

Is there a workaround?

Thank you!
