Are you setting up Windows Server 2012 R2 and not sure how to add default shortcuts for every user? The answer is quite simple. All you need to do is the following:

  1. Go to C:\Users\
  2. Ensure that you can see hidden folders
  3. Look for a Folder called Default. The address is: C:\Users\Default
  4. Open the folder called Desktop
  5. Copy all the shortcuts that you want to appear on every single RDP session in to this folder.
  6. Problem solved
