XP-Protector Help: Tutorial
XP-Protector lets you easily edit Start menu and Desktop of each user. Maybe you know that the desktop and start menu are folders located typically in C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]... and you can edit their contents using Windows Explorer. But in XP-Protector you can do it comfortably and also define some special options.
Editing Start menu:
In the tree expand User settings - Start menu & Desktop.
Click the Start Menu item for now.
After the window loads you will see two panes. The left one shows start menu of the user selected in toolbar as it appears to the user (remember the contents of user's start menu is merged with the start menu of All users profile). Right tree displays Start menu of user selected in the helper combo-box above it. Note that unlike the left tree this is purely the contents of Start menu folder, not merged with All users profile.
Use these check-boxes to define additional options such as prevent user from changing his/her Start menu.
You can Rename or Delete items and also create new folders and shortcuts in the Start menu.
The same commands are also available from context menu.
It is possible to drag and drop items from the right tree to the left one and also move or copy items in the left tree. Note that the right tree is "read only". It serves as a source of items. The Start menu you want to edit should be displayed in the tree on the left.
Click this button to open the Start menu folder in Windows Explorer.
Now click the Desktop item in Start menu & Desktop.
You should see a small version of the desktop of the user selected in combo-box in toolbar.
The options for working with folders and shortcuts on the desktop are the same as in Start menu editor.
Special items such as Recycle bin, This computer icon etc. can be displayed/hidden using the context menu or the Invisible items button.
You can also change the wallpaper for the user.
