How can I add an RDP shortcut to all PC desktops without doing it manually?

1namyln used Ask the Experts™
I have a Windows 2003 Server Std domain.  I would like to add an RDP icon to each users desktop.  If deleted I would like it added each time.  This RDP shortcut would be one that I've saved basic settings to.  For example, IP address.  I'm not very familiar with GPO's.

I'd just do a single line in a login script -

IF not exist "%userprofile%\desktop\YourDesired.RDP" copy "\\server\share\path\to RDP\file\YourDesired.RDP" "%userprofile%\desktop\YourDesired.RDP"


Obviously a Genius for a reason!  Thanks a ton.  Especially for the late night resonse.  Worked like a charm.  Had to gpupdate afterwards but it worked great!!  Thanks again.
