why application Short is reverting back to the old shortcut when PC is restarted.
Posted on 2014-01-23
We use windows 2012 and XP and windows 7
I have a shortcut on the following location
\\PC1\c$\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Food Technology\Shortcut1
I accessed all the PC with the UNC path and copied the new shortcut to the above location.
The new short cut has a different application path pointing to our new server and the new short cut is called Shortcut1
After copying the new shortcut and when I reboot the PC, the application target path is again pointing to the old server, which doesn’t exist anymore.
So looks like the old short cut is getting copied from some GPO if I am right
I went to the every GPO that is applied to this particular OU Computer configuration -Windows settings-shortcut and no shortcut is specified here.
I don't know as from where this setting is reversed back when the PC is rebooted.
Any help much appreciated.
