GPO shows applied but nothing shows on workstation

I created a GPO to place a shortcut on all users workstations. (see attached)

RSOP shows GPO applied but shortcut does not appear.  

Verified Read/Apply for workstations is set in security. GPO is linked

Review of Event Viewer does not show any errors with the GPO.

What else can I do or should I be looking at to get this to work?

I believe the command "gpupdate /force" may cause the workstations to take a look at the updated group policy and solve your problem for you. See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490983.aspx. Run the command from a workstation to test.

Norm, I did GPUpdate /force and no joy.  but this morning when I logged in to my workstation lo and behold the shortcut is there and working.  Before I left last night I set new permissions on the entire path of the FQDN.  I think that may have solved the issue.  I am testing now to confirm.
