Internet Explorer 7 Icon On Desktop

Recommended Posts

I've setup an unattended install of XP SP2 using Green Machine's method here: http://www.msfn.org/board/GreenMachine-s-Complete-SVCPACKINF-t109040.html ://http://www.msfn.org/board/GreenMach...F-t109040.html ://http://www.msfn.org/board/GreenMach...F-t109040.html ://http://www.msfn.org/board/GreenMach...F-t109040.html .

However, the icon for IE7 does not show on the desktop and I can't seem to find out how to do it via the Registry or other.

I tried importing these registry keys

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]
"{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000
"{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}"=dword:00000000
"{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000
"{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

With no luck. I do get the My Documents, My Computer, and My Network Places.

Is this the wrong name for IE7? Thanks in advance.

Try using nlite. Just go to reg tweaks > desktop > Internet explorer icon. That worked for me with IE7.

I need to accomplish this without using any third party apps to meet the security requirements of my company. Any other idea?

Could you be using the classic desk top?

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\ClassicStartMenu]

"{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

That did not work for me either JBM. I am using the new start menu, but the classic windows theme.
