Windows 7 short cuts for all users

I am just starting a Windows XP to Windows 7 32 bit migration.  I can not seem top find a way to give anyone who logs into the Windows 7 workstation access to a shortcut or shortcuts in Windos 7.  
 Windows XP pro had a very easy way to give all users who logged in access to shortcuts.  You simply created the shortcuts on the \DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ALL USERS\DESKTOP and anyone who logged in would have access to what you placed there.

Is there a way to do this with Windows 7.

Thanks much.

Put shortcuts on Desktop or in the Taskbar.  An easy way to create a shortcut is by rightclicking the executable file and then choosing Send To|Desktop (create as Shortcut).
