Best way to deploy shortcut to staff users
We need to give a web shortcut to all users who dont have redirected desktops or program sets. What would be the best way of doing this? Our staff have roaming profiles and can typically pin / unpin whatever they like to start menu's / desktops.
The shortcut points to an internal URL to retreive spam email, so it would be great if we could somehow get the shortcut into outlook 2010 but failing that the desktop would be fine too.

Group Policy Preferences, set to Create the file in the roaming desktop location (using environment variables as appropriate e.g. %userprofile%\Desktop), Run in Logged On User Context to sidestep any security shenanigans.
Or use IE GPOs to add the favourite to the browser - Policies > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance

cheers, i actually found USER CONFIGURATION > PREFERENCES > WINDOWS SETTINGS > SHORTCUTS seems to have worked fine after a gpupdate /force

That's handy, never knew about that. But we have redirected desktops and start menus so never needed to, I suppose!
