How to add a desktop shortcut for All Users in Windows Server 2008


Rather than adding via Explore All Users Windows 2008 is a little more tricky. To add any file so that it is available to any profile user on their desktop simply navigate to C:\Users\Public. Public Desktop is hidden by default so either change the permissions on the folder or simply click in the folder drop down menu and type Public Desktop or just Desktop and hit Enter. The folder becomes accessible and you can drop files and folders into it to be accessed by all users.
