Custom Desktop icons for RDP users

Setting up a remote desktop connection to windows server 2012 for a few company owners to access one on-site application.

The issue is that all the current desktop icons are saved in the public desktop folder. So I can't delete these icons for the new accounts unless I delete them from the public desktop folder.

What would be the best way to maintain these icons for the current accounts but allow the new accounts to have a custom desktop and delete the icons from it they won't need (without affecting everyone else's desktop)?

The only option, in my opinion, is to copy all the icons from the public desktop to existing account profiles then delete them from the public desktop.

How many users do you have connecting to the Remote Desktop server?

Do they need the full desktop and if not, you could implement RDS and publish only the single application for authorized users to access.

It then sounds like publishing an RDS setup may work for you however do they all need to see the server desktop or various applications?

No, they only need to see the one application.
