Dropping the shortcuts into the desktop of all users is what I want to do. I just wish I knew how to do it - a specific shortcut - moving it from the server to the desktop of a user. Any help on this would be great.
If you create a shortcut on your server this will exist as a .lnk file, and as long as you make all the details in the shortcut generic (i.e. so it will work no matter what machine it is on) you can then copy it. One way is to have the login script do this; it can easily delete the old shortcut (on the local machine under all users desktop for example) then copy in a new one. A development for this is to have a login script with a series of sections, each of which tests whether the user is a member of a domain group. If they are a member then the script copies over the appropriate shortcut for the application or facility
