Lock.configuration with modifications

Hey guys,
Question, is it possible to have the lock.configuration = true and still have the ability to add the popup menu for shortcut or maybe have the shortcut automatically create?
On our last update to 8.1.32 I decided to go with the locked configuration and just had the user replace their .ignition file but unlike before where they could just open the launcher and create a shortcut, with config locked, they can't. Was hoping there is a better way to get that part accomplished.

Thank you
