Normal (non-administrator) user is unable to remove/delete short cut from desktop in windows domain environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to allow normal ((non-administrator) user to remove shortcuts from their system in windows domain environment.

    Actually we have applied "Disable windows installer" gpo to restricted user to install or remove application but few users want to remove shortcuts from their desktops.

  • Where are the shortcuts located in the file structure? 

    C:\Users\Public\Desktop is the public Desktop and needs administrator rights delete shortcuts there. 

    %USERPROFILE%\Desktop is the users Desktop and user can create delete shortcuts there.
