The desktop UI group policy settings control View Persona Management settings that users see on their desktops.

Group Policy Setting


Hide local offline file icon

Determines whether to hide the offline icon when a user views locally stored files that belong to the user profile. Enabling this setting hides the offline icon in Windows Explorer and most Windows dialog boxes.

By default, the offline icon is hidden.

Show progress when downloading large files

Determines whether to display a progress window on a user's desktop when the client retrieves large files from the remote repository.

When this setting is enabled, you can specify the minimum file size, in megabytes, to begin displaying the progress window. The window is displayed when View Persona Management determines that the specified amount of data will be retrieved from the remote repository. This value is an aggregate of all files that are retrieved at one time.

For example, if the setting value is 50MB and a 40MB file is retrieved, the window is not displayed. If a 30MB file is retrieved while the first file is still being downloaded, the aggregate download exceeds the value and the progress window is displayed. The window appears when a file starts downloading.

By default, this value is 50MB.

By default, this progress window is not displayed.

Show critical errors to users via tray icon alerts

Displays critical error icon alerts in the desktop tray when replication or network connectivity failures occur.

By default, these icon alerts are hidden.
