One way I have found to create icons for all users on their desktop is to drop the files in the Public folders. This way, old and new users of the Windows computer will have the necessary icons/shortcuts on their desktop once they login after the update.
I have also discovered that this is a great way to have users who are being migrated to a new computer or is getting a hard drive replacement to see their data once they login to the computer and the Operating System create their profile on the hard drive.
With the computer name available, the technician can later move the files from the Public folders to the user’s profile without the user having any downtime or awareness.
