PostPosted: Windows Desktop Search Help, Preventing Users from Adding Paths Top

We have WDS 2.6.5 installed on some systems, is there any way to gray out the "Add" button in the Options, Indexing, Browse window We want users to choose what to index from what's listed and don't want our users adding paths. The reason we want this is because they can add other computers and we don't want it to index other computers on the network. We didn't find it in the Group Policy settings, so maybe there is another way of doing this, i.e., the registry or another gp template.

Thanks.

DJV,

The best way to do this is to do the following:

Via group policy...

Turn off the First Run Customization Wizard

Prevent User Defined Locations

Prevent Indexing of Certain Paths
