When a Group Policy Object (GPO) is created or updated they will automatically be applied to each vPC. But in some circumstances they may take a while to get transferred to a users vPC. GPO's are used by the Admin team to distribute things like desktop shortcuts to vPC's.

To manually force a GPO update do the following steps on your vPC;

  • Click on the search tool (Magnifying glass icon at the bottom left of your vPC's desktop)

  • Now start typing;

  • You will see gpupdate appear as a 'Best match' so either simply tap the return key or click on gpupdate in the 'Best match' list.

  • You will see a window appear briefly while the update is happening and that window will close automatically. Now your vPC has all of the latest GPO updates applied.
