    Hi Sharath,

    All these will be created normally in Windows XP machine. Do you want to create an additional shortcut?

    For Win 2003 only recyclebin will be created....
    A way that can check if available then should not create.

    Outlook also does not get created on the desktop

    If you change the mode to classic it will have all icons except the outlook 2003 icon or you can use GP to force classic mode to all the machines.

    Outlook 2003 ICON
    Try this script.........
    Dim objShell, bKey

    Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    objShell.RegWrite"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{00020D75-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\", "3", "REG_SZ"

    MsgBox "Done"
