Hello Experts,

I need a VB Script or Batch File to add a shortcut to a all users desktop folder called "Corporate Shortcuts". The link is https://ipay.adp.com.

The requested Icon location is \\pcfileprint\PC_Signatures\CDR Link Project\Bank-Check.ico

I have the the following code ready, however it will place the icon/shortcut on the desktop not the All Users/ Desktop / Corporate Shortcuts folder..

Thanks in advance!

Dim objShell:Set objShell=CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
strDesktop = objShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
Dim objSC: Set objSC=objShell.CreateShortCut(strDesktop & "\iPAY-adp.lnk")
With objSC
  .IconLocation ="\\pcfileprint\PC_Signatures\CDR Link Project\Bank-Check.ico"
End With
Set objSC=Nothing
Set objShell=Nothing
