Hi, i have a few client computers running windows 10, and my active directory server running server 2019. I have the windows 10 start menu set on the servers gpo to make all windows 10 clients use a start menu.xml template to keep the start menu layout the same on all windows 10 computers. The start menu applies to all local users and domain users on the active directory machine. Domain users are using roaming profiles.

I am currently having issues with the start menu when logging in as a domain, the start menu width is not fully expaned (see 1.png). I manaually resize the width (see 2.png) which sets the correct width but when i log off and back on as the same user it reduces the height back to normal (see 1.png). How would i have this expanded at all times like (image 2.png)

NOTE: This issue does not happen to local computer users.

What do you mean local computers as compared to?

Have you checked what computers are getting what policy? Perhaps there is a conflict?

All computers are getting the correct group policy and startmenu.xml template as all the items are in the start menu listed in the template. Its just not saving the start menu width. The width is not specified in the template as i dont think i can set it maybe it stores on the users profile?

If all others are equal, then it sounds like a user profile issue. I assume the users in question also have the same credentials (i.e standard/power/administrator)
