Wouldn't this be part of the desktop settings in Policies ?

I hope this helps !

The quicklaunch toolbar is represented by this folder:
%userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

You can place the shortcuts in there.

Not that I can find - I am using 2000 server

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Just confirmed it's the same place on a 2000 server.  Do you currently have the toolbar showing?  If so, right-click an area not on an icon, but on the toolbar, and choose Open Folder.

The path I gave above should be the same for all users.

I understand that I can add it manually to profiles, but I need to have it add to each user automatically - is there a script of something to copy the shortcut to this directory as the logon?

G'day mate

how about writing a small line into the user login script?

\\sydserver01 is your server in this example

copy \\sydserver01\files\shortcut.lnk c:\%userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\

Paths may not be exactly correct but you get this idea.  This will copy shortcut.lnk that you made available on a network share into all users who use that login script.

Hope that helps
