How to exclude Shortcuts from syncing to OneDrive with Microsoft Endpoint Manager – Microsoft Intune
Microsoft OneDrive is a great service for storing your files. And when you have “Known Folder Redirection” enabled, your Desktop, Documents and Pictures folders are redirected to OneDrive and synched to the cloud. This way you have the same Desktop, Documents and Pictures folders available on every device which benefits the user experience. However, you have applications that place a shortcut on the desktop the first time you log in to a new system, for example the Microsoft Edge browser and Microsoft Teams. This results in many of the same shortcuts on your desktop (copy offs) if you switch devices often.
