In WIndows 7 one could setup a mandatory local desktop for client machines.
I would sign in as domain administrator on the client machine.
Setup all the shortcuts to RDP servers, Website etc.
Allow users local admin control.
Login with another admin account on client.
Copy desired shortcuts and website short cuts to Public desktop from administrator folder.
Copy ntuser.dat from administrator to all users folder.
When you login with user account you have a standardized setup for each new user on that machine.
This worked great for a multi-user machines.  How to accomplish in WIndows 10??
