Desktop Shortcut

    Question

  • Hi to all. I have a GPO that creates a desktop shortcut. However it adds a prefix to the UNC path: http://\\my unc path\This breaks the shortcut.

    GPO Settings:

    Action = Create

    Name = My Shortcut Name

    Target Type = URL

    Target URL = \\my unc path\app.exe

    Icon Path = \\my unc path\app.exe

    Kind Regards,

    Phil.

  • I have resolved. I changed target type to Shell Object. For Target object I browsed the Network then slected the .exe.

    Thanks,
