Hello maslam and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not sure what shortcut is missing. Does the program or application appear in the Start Menu? If yes, can you right-click on the program/app > select Create Shortcut > then click Yes to have the shortcut placed on the desktop.

shortcut is leading to specific shared folder in storage device.moreover they cant create shortcut because they dont have permission to create shortcut..

Can they pin it to the taskbar ? If not you will have to sign on to each machine as an admin to put the shortcut on the desktop.

You simply find the shared folder on each pc, copy it then paste it to the desktop. Where is the network administrator of this establishment ? He or she should be doing it, not you.

With all that money over there I`m sure someone is getting well paid.
