Group Policy set Start menu on Windows 10 / Remote Desktop Host

 It looks like this may no longer be a developed feature but still works if you make a change to the XML.
Under Taskbar settings roaming, but could be unrelated as its not clear what is included in "Taskbar Settings"

So mileage may vary.

First get a Windows 10 / Remote Desktop host and set up the start menu as you wish it to be.  the open PowerShell and run the following.

Export-StartLayout -Path "<LOCATION>/<FILENAME>.xml"

Open the XML and edit the following line


so that it appears like this

<DefaultLayoutOverride LayoutCustomizationRestrictionType="OnlySpecifiedGroups">

save the XML and set the Group policy to the location where it was saved.

User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Start Menu and Taskbar>Start Menu Layout
