mudcow007 used Ask the Experts™

on our y2k servers we had a shortcut on terminal service users desktops to our sales system (Axapta) this shortcut was a local webpage displayed on the users desktop

i have just installed a spanking new 2008r2 server an i was hoping to be able to do the same type of shortcut, but i cant find an option anywhere

i have added installed "Desktop Experience" but this hasnt really helped
