Hello there,

I want to ensure that Snipping Tool appears on All users Start Menu when users launch Citrix Full Desktop connecting to XA 6.5 server (on W2K8 R2 OS).

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards.

    You can use Group Prolicy Preferences to create a pinned shortcut in the start menu.

    Assisted Solution

    If you have not hidden the All Users items by gpo, just copy the shortcut to %systemroot%\programdata\microsoft\windows\start menu\programs

    If you *have* hidden it, then there are a variety of ways to script the pinning of the shortcut to the start menu with Powershell.
