Remove Desktop Icons

If you are managing your desktops with ZENworks you may wish to have better control over icons that are placed on a users desktop from the All Users Desktop. This tip is a simple demonstration on how you can easily script deletion of files from AllUsersDesktop.

Create a bundle with a Launch Action to run a script. The script supplied here is a vbscriptand should have an extension of .vbs. The script engine should be set to %WINDIR%\system32\wscript.exe.

Click to view.

If users need additional rights to do this, as is likely, from More Options you can select run as Administrator.

The code of the script is below:

Option Explicit

Dim oShell, oSpecialFolders, oURL, oAllUsers,oFSO, OFC, file

Set oFSO = createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

set oShell = createobject("")

Set oSpecialFolders = oShell.SpecialFolders

set oAllUsers = oFSO.GetFolder( oSpecialFolders("AllUsersDesktop") )

Set OFC = oAllUsers.Files

For Each file In OFC
