Creating a Desktop Shortcut for for All Users is a custom Google search engine that uses SafeSearch technology to make it safe for kids! There won’t be quite as many results (still tens of thousands!) but they will be more kid-friendly!   

In the video below, I demonstrate how to add a Desktop Shortcut for for All Users in Windows 7. You can use this to add a shortcut to anything!

Adding Desktop Shortcut for All Users (Windows 7)

  • Create the Shortcut on your desktop
  • Navigate to C:\Users\Public\Desktop in File Explorer
  • Paste or Drag the shortcut into this folder
*Some users may not be able to access the Public Desktop folder on their computers. If this is the case for you, there's one more quick step that will allow you to see this folder. (Okay, FIVE steps, but they're quick!)
  • From File Explorer (the file folder icon on your desktop), click Organize > Folder and Search Options
  • On the View tab, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives, Apply, OK
