Dear All,

Here in my company windows server 2012 is installed .Domain & GP is also configured. We have applied  most of the restrictions to all the users.  When the users login with their user name they don't get the icons for my computer & my documents.  
Through group policy i want to configure my computer & my documents  icons in the desktop for all the users. so that when they login they get those two shortcuts in their desktops. How to configure.

Note:-All the users are fully restricted. They can't make any changes.
