Hi
I have a custom deskstop that i point all users to so they get the same desktop. I have a new app which i need to deploy so i thought i would take a look at GPO preferences to set the shortcut on the custom desktop.

I can t seem to find how you set the target location to a specific location or maybe this is not possible and i am wasting my time.

Thanks
King

Under name, type the full path + file name for the shortcut. EX: C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Shortcut.lnk

Leave the location as <specify Full Path?
