    Placing the My Documents on Desktop via GPO or Script

    Hi guys,

    I've now got the 'My Documents' redirected successfully to the 'S' drive for the students. Thanks to all for that.

    Now, I'd like to put a shortcut to 'My Documents' on the desktop for the little darlings to make it easy for them to find their documents.

    Is there a way through a GPO or Scripting to do this or any other method that is going to be straight forward and quick?

    Thanks in advance,

    Simon.

    Can you just make a shortcut to S:\ called my documents?
    There is an icon and if you look the key up to turn it on group policy preferences can deploy the key change for free.

    You could use Desktop folder redirection. It's what I'm doing here. Just put the icons they needed, including a shortcut to My Documents (N: here ), in the redirect path. Folder direction is in the User GPO's.

    This might be of some use:

    Hide/Show Internet Explorer Desktop Icon

    Except change the current user to local machine and it will do it for all users.
