Create IE Shortcut on Desktop using GPO

I would like to create an IE shortcut to all user's desktops using Group Policy. This is on a Server 2003 server, I know it's not supported but it's temporary after an acquisition. Can it be done through Group Policy on the server or do I need to create a script? Thanks.

One way of doing this is we can create a startup script that runs a batch file from the netlogon folder.

Way I would recommend to do this is to use a build for your computers and configure these settings in the default user profile, this way any new user on the machine that has the build will receive your customized desktop.

I got it figured out. I just installed RSAT and accessed Group Policy that way. I then had the Preferences folder to create a new shortcut and it worked.
