I want to put an icon on the desktop for all users. Currently all users have this but we would like new users to be automatically given this icon.  What is the best way to do this?  Is it possible to do this with GPO?

having an issue with the icon. I opened the shortcut in notepad and found the directory for the favicon.ico file. However, im unable to browse to this directory for some reason and it will not work with the GPO. Is there a way to extract an icon file another way?
