Win10 Deploy – Forcing Start Menu Layout and Allow Users to Pin Shortcuts

Following the previous article (Win10 Deploy – Customizing Start Menu and Forcing it with GPO) you could create a customized layout, force the layout to be applied but, the users could not pin any shortcuts they need.

If you want users to be able to do that, just follow these steps after exporting the xml file:

  • Edit the xml file exported
  • Located the tag “<DefaultLayoutOverride>
  • Change the tag to the following:
    <DefaultLayoutOverride LayoutCustomizationRestrictionType=”OnlySpecifiedGroups”>
  • Save the xml file

And it’s all done.

Now, you’re Start Menu layout has the pinned shortcuts you want (locked) and users are able to add they’re own shortcuts.
