Creating shortcuts for "All Users" to be placed on desktop
Posted on 2004-09-13
I'm really ashamed for even asking such a question, but it just won't work and I'm confused!!
I made these shortcuts from the Microsoft Office folder (they were copies of shortcuts) and placed them under C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\
Well the trouble is they show-up on everyone's desktop when the user logs on, but they WONT WORK! They have that broken software icon (blank page with Win 3.x progman icon in the middle) and when double-clicked they won't do ANYTHING. When I right click and go to their properties, it says "This is not a valid shortcut" When I drag-drop the SAME shortcutI made on the desktop of the user, it works?!?!?
I am not going to create 150 profiles on the lab PCs with the icon dragged-dropped manually... So can anyone please enlighten me as to what's goin on here?
