How to Delete a File/Folder at Logon [GPO Script Settings]

Since I started, there has been a GPO in place, but I just learned that it is not performing its intended function. Since this platform might occasionally transmit sensitive information between agents and supervisors, it was determined that these logs should be frequently removed.

We think the GPO logon/logoff script performs well for your situation. Let us check how to use your computer's logon and logoff script.

1. Start by launching the Local Group Policy Editor.

2. In the console tree, choose Scripts (Logon/Logoff). User ConfigurationWindows SettingsScripts (Logon/Logoff) is the route.

3. Double-click Logon/Logoff in the results box to begin.

4. Click "Add" in the Logon/Logoff Properties dialog box.

5. Type the script's path into the Script Name field or click "Browse" to look for the script file in the domain controller's Netlogon shared folder. Type whatever parameters you like in the Script Parameters box in the same manner as you would on the command line. For instance, type /logo /I if your script includes the parameters /logo (display banner) and /I (interactive mode).

6. The Logon/Logoff Properties dialog box provides a list of all the scripts that are presently assigned to the chosen GPO. When numerous scripts are assigned, they are executed in the sequence you choose. Click a script and then choose "Up" to move it up the list. Click a script in the list, then click "Down" to move it down.

After using the logon/logoff script, the files can be deleted normally.
