Group Policy Shortcut issue

Dear Experts,

I want to configure desktop shortcuts for the shared folders  for some users in different departments. My environment is configured with windows Server 2012 . AD is configured & also all the clients are having windows 7 , Windows 8 & Windows 10 computers  I tried my self the below configuration but when i log in with users there is no shortcuts in the desktop.

Created a security group and added those users to this group.
Created a new shortcut group policy .
Did the edit -user configuration-Preferences-Windows Settings-Shortcuts-New-Action-Create .Did the Item Level Targeting. Its not working for me. I have attached the GP pics.
Please suggest me where I am going wrong.

Regards,

No attachment. Copy the GPP item and past it here in a code tag (it is just XML)

Did you log off after adding the user object to the security group?  If not the system does not see you as part of the group yet.

Also check your event logs | application and Services | microsoft | Windows | grouppolicy and see if there are any errors.

As the previous reply, screenshots of each window.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

That all looks correct.  Can you confirm if the GPP is applying to an OU or the hierarchy of OU's that the User Object resides in?

Hi ,

If i try to apply GP on  particular OU then its getting applied. But when i am trying to a group its not working.

Group requires read and apply GPO rights, did you assign it?
yo_beeDirector of Information TechnologyCommented:
@JCT

Let me clarify my question.
Do the user object reside in or is in the hierarchy of the OU that the GPO is linked to?  If the GPO is linked to an OU outside of the user object then the GPO will never apply to the user (accept if you have Loopback enabled correctly).

Here is an example.
