Remove the Network link from Windows Explorer

By default can browse the network with the network icon in Windows Exlorer. If for some reason you don’t want this, make this change.

Solution:
Make a change to the Registry by using a GPO

Open your RDS Server Machine Policy and expand the following folders:

Computer Configuration, Preferences, Registry

Right click and choose New, Registry Item

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key Path: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\NonEnum
Value name: {F02C1A0D-BE21-4350-88B0-7367FC96EF3C}
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value Data (hex): 00000001

All should look like the above screenshot.

Click OK and you’re all set!
