Windows 7: Location of desktop icons

28 Apr 2010   #1

Location of desktop icons

I need to automate the inclusion of specific desktop icons onto a user's desktop.

I can't do this by the normal method, personalization, so I need to figure out if there's a registry key that can do this or a location within the system directory. Or something else.

Anyone have any ideas?
