How do you configure default desktop shortcuts in Remote Desktop Services?

We have implemented a new Server 2008 R2 server running Remote Desktop Services. All the users are able to connect without any problems and everything is working great. Just a simple question of customization, now. How can you set default desktop shortcuts for users? Currently, when a new user logs in, they have a blank desktop. We don't want to reset any users who have already arranged their desktop icons how they see fit, but we would like to be sure that a specific application's shortcut shows up on everyone's desktop, new or already set up. How can we accomplish this?

Open the Users\Public\Desktop folder and put any shortcuts or links in there. They will show up for all users on the Terminal Server.

Worked perfectly! Thanks! This does duplicate shortcuts if the user has already added them to their desktop, but it looks like there's no way around that.
