How to Pin shortcut to Startmenu in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was trying to pin a URL based shortcut to Startmenu while monitoring. Once the monitoring is completed and in applcations wizard, i can see the shortcut placed in both desktop(which is required initially) and "%CSIDL_APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu". When i publish this application over SCCM, the pinned shortcut is not visible. But the desktop shortcut which was originally created is available. How to get this shortcut pinned to shortcut?
