Create shortcut GPO in active directory

Da_Ch0sen asked
I have a gpo that GPO that creates a shortcut when ila user logs on.
It's working fine. Just that the a new short cut is created when the user logs on.
Can we make it that it only create the shortcut if it doesn't exist ?

if you are creating shortcut under User Configuration-->Prefences-->Windows Settings-->Shortcuts

you can enable "Common" option on the 2nd tab

by enabling "Item-level targeting"

use File Exist option "is" or "is not" to trigger the item to be applied or not
