shortcut on desktop for all users

Hello,

I have two files: an ico file with the icon and a shortcut to an intranet page. How can i make sure that every user that logs on on that pc, will see the icon (with the url in it)?

You'll need to place both shortcuts in the Public desktop folder. Navigate to "C:\Users\Public\Desktop" (to see this folder, you'll need to unhide hidden files and folders first), then paste the shortcuts there.
