Creating shortcut policy not work for Computer Configuration


  • Hi,

    I have Windows 2008 R2 domain. I want to add a program shortcut on desktop for a group of computer. I first created an OU and put those computers to the OU and then I created the GPO with Computer Configuration, it doesn't work, however it worked if I set the GPO by User Configuration, but I have to use computer OU. Did I miss something?

    Need help!

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hello,

    Thanks for your post.

    In order to work further, we want to confirm something with you.

    Have you configured Group Policy loopback processing mode before?

    Could you please check the results of Group Policy by use the Group Policy Results snap-in in Group Policy Management console or run command “gpresult /h result.html” on client.

    If possible, please provide some screenshots of Group Policy result and the current Group Policy Preference settings.

    Note: Please remember to hide the sensitive information as our forum is an opened platform.

    In addition, you could check the group policy results to see the path of the shortcut, like following picture:

    Hope above information could help you. If you have anything unclear, please feel free to let me know.

    Best Regards,
