Desktop Shortcut

Recommended Posts

I've had this script I've used in our old RMM which would allow you to execute the script as the logged in user. I don't seem to have found a way to do this. Is there a way or what's the best way to create a shortcut on the current users desktop?

$Shell = New-Object -ComObject ("WScript.Shell")
$Favorite = $Shell.CreateShortcut($env:USERPROFILE + "\Desktop\MyShortcut.url")
$Favorite.TargetPath = "http://www.google.com";

If all users need the same shortcut, I recommend putting it on the public user's desktop instead, which would give it to all users that log into the system. It might also be better suited for a GPO, which has very good per-user control.
