Deploy a shortcut with SCCM 2012

In the following post I will show one way to deploy a shortcut with System Center Configuration Manager 2012 to every user on a PC client. To do this I will use a simple PowerShell script and beforehand create the shortcut file.

Create the shortcut file by right click and add the information needed.

Add the shortcut to a SCCM package together with the following “CopyToAllUsersDesktops” PowerShell script. Remember to change the “NewShortcut.lnk” in the script to the name of the link to deploy.

 

Now just create a SCCM program that kicks of the PowerShell script and deploy it.
