Hello,

Is it an AutoIt related questions?

You couls use either GPO, Logon script to manage IE favorite or maybe copy the shortcut in the user profile.

Hope this help

I found this in vbs, and ran it through the vbs --> au3 converter, cleaned it up a bit and here you go!!

Const $ADMINISTRATIVE_TOOLS = 6

            $objShell = ObjCreate("Shell.Application")
            $objFolder = $objShell.Namespace($ADMINISTRATIVE_TOOLS) 
            $objFolderItem = $objFolder.Self     

            $objShell = ObjCreate("WScript.Shell")
            $strDesktopFld = $objFolderItem.Path


            $objURLShortcut = $objShell.CreateShortcut($strDesktopFld & "\Yahoo.url")
            $objURLShortcut.TargetPath = "http://www.yahoo.com"
            $objURLShortcut.Save()
:whistle:
