I have to copy a desktopy shortcut to an end users desktop.
I used to simply do it from search bar and \computername\C$%Users\Public\Desktop, but I no longer have that access. I was told to use Powershell ? But I find that a bit complicated to map the C$ of a single user as its only one person asking.
The path is correct (edit: apart from %Users, that should be \Users), but the user you are using doesn’t have the required access rights to the folder. Are you doing it as a domain admin or a local admin?
