GPO Desktop

Hi folks i am trying to create a domain user account that is very restricted which will be used for testing. I'd like to only show one icon which is a URL to a website for testing purposes. I can successfully deploy the URL via GPO however I also get a bunch of other icons (MS Word, Excel, other programs, etc..) along with the URL I need. If I enable the "Hide and disable all items on the desktop" GPO it does exactly that and takes everything away as it should.

My question is can I enable the above GPO and still somehow plant an icon on the desktop? This is needed for dozens of computers so I cannot manually login and mess with profiles. Is there another way to do this besides GPO? Thanks so much in advance for your time and help!
