Experts. I have a windows xp/2003 AD environment with 200+ users. Depending on the department the user is in, their desktop is redirected to that department's standard desktop folder located on the file server. I don't want the user to be able to add anything to the desktop, so I gave the user read permissions only to the desktop folder. Now, the powers that be have asked that each user have a shortcut to their timesheet placed on their desktop. Since there are too many users, I would like to script this.
So, how can I copy the shortcut to the desktop when the user logs in if they have read-only permissons? Can you temporarily adjust the permission level so the shortcut can be placed and then revert back to read-only? The login script is a batch file and I would like to stick with that, if possible. Thanks for the help!
