I want a Network Share to show up on the left hand side Favorites in Windows Explorer:
GPO---Explorer-Links-Example.jpg
My only success has been on the Desktop and IE Favorites... The Desktop link is fine but I really want it in the Explorer Favorites and I don't want the IE Favorites.

Thanks McKnife, but I'm trying to avoid going to 100+ computers if I can automate this.

Ah, that's why you wrote "group policy"...
The favorites are located in %userprofile%\links, have a GPO create a shortcut there in. With group policy preferences, you can use variables like %userprofile%.
