How to create desktop shortcuts for all users


If you are a Windows administrator or just you want for family computer to have same desktop shortcuts you need to do a few things .

First for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 you need to reveal these folders because are hidden by default .

So you need to go Control Panel > File Explorer Options > click on the View tab > under Advanced settings > hidden files and folders > choose “Show hidden files, folders, and drives” and click “OK”.

Select all shortcuts that you want to appear on the all users desktop and click “copy” or “ctrl+c” .

Then go to C:\Users\Public\Desktop and click “paste” or “ctrl+v” to paste the shortcuts in all users desktop .

For WinXP it is the same procedure but the path to all users desktop is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop .

Good luck !
