Create a web shortcut for all users
Create a shortcut on the All Users Desktop that opens a specific web URL in the default browser.
Create Web Desktop Shortcut - Windows has no reviews.
This works well but is there a way when creating a shortcut to run in a certain browser such as IE or Chrome when the shortcut is created?
Hi buster, I can look into adding this.
If you want to email a sample, I can help you try it out. firstname.lastname@example.org is my email address.. Looking forward to getting it though.. I have a big project coming up so it would be helpful ASAP. thanks
I just got this working using a different method. I'll e-mail you some of the files to test, but most likely I will add them all to a 'shortcuts' pack and put that up here as a different download.
This works great with the additional procedures
Hi guys, I came across your XML script and it works really good when manually pushing it to users as it asks for Shortcut name and URL but i am trying to automate the deployment by placing it on a policy and i can't get around filling out the XML file with the URL i need pushed so that it just goes and creates the shortcut. Any advise would be really appreciate it.
Is there one to deploy a shortcut for an exe shortcut?
Should be fairly easy to modify the xml to create a shortcut linking to any arbitrary file, but I haven't tried it.
Get the file path of the exe and use that in place of the URL.
The procedure will use the #shortcutURL# variable and place a '.url file' extension at the end. A shortcut to a normal file is usually a '.lnk' file so change that part.
Sounds like this works well for web site urls. Is there a way to modify, or do you know any other methods, for deploying a shortcut link to a file on an internal server? I need to send out an updated link for computers to map to certain drives once connected to VPN to run a batch file to map network drives.
I need help with this - I dont know how to fill out the procedure - i dont know what to put in all the variables
i tried .lnk tried to play with it and no luck. did anyone figure it out? if yes please let me know thanks
I just copy an pre-built shortcut from a shared location or from Kaseya's Managed Files.
Any way to add changing the desktop icon to custom icon?
That should be possible if you modify agent procedure to add also following text into .url file:
But please note that icon should be available on local file system of agent's machine.
I am not sure how i would add that and what line it would go on. Can you provide an example?
hey Ryan, send me your email, i will try to send you my script and see if that works for you
