    To add a folder to the desktop after installing Windows, right click on any open area of the desktop and select New Folder. Change the name of the folder from New Folder to whatever you want to call it.

    Adding stuff to the newly created user folder (even the desktop) afaik needs to be done at FirstLogon Stage of Setup via firstlogon.cmd :g:.

    At the root of the ISO/DVD create $OEM$\$$\Setup\Scripts subfolder structure and place the script (firstlogon.cmd) and the folder you want to be copied inside the Scripts folder.

    firstlogon.cmd example:

    Code:
    @echo off
    md "%systemdrive%\users\%username%\desktop\YOURFOLDERNAME"
    xcopy "YOURFOLDERNAME\*.*" /s /q "%systemdrive%\users\%username%\desktop\YOURFOLDERNAME" /y
    exit
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
