Group policy shortcut is working but icon is blank
Posted on 2015-01-08
We are running windows server 2008. I have created a desktop shortcut via group policy and this works fine.
I am trying to get the icon to correctly show on the client desktops - I have tried saving the .ico to a network share on the server and assigning the icon that way - still blank....I have tried to copy the .ico file via GPO to the workstations using destination %systemroot%\windows (hoping that this will dump the .ico file onto the workstation and then enable me to assign the icon as %systemroot%\windows\icon.ico)
I know that this can be achieved via powershell but I have never used this. Any pointers?
