Yes, typing Alt+d in File Explorer, followed by shell:startup will place you in the relevant directory. Try pasting the JAWS shortcut in there.

Well, I am not on any sort of a corporate network, but I wonder about your below solution. Maybe something like it might work for me! You say that the solution was to copy the JAWS shortcut into “shell:startup (which is where the user’s startup programs reside).” What does this mean. I am used to seeing something more like “C: . . . “ or a directory path. So, does your below indicate something like that?
I once experienced this on a Windows 7 system. According to Freedom Scientific support, it was probably due to group policy settings (the machine was part of an Active Directory domain).
The solution was to copy the desktop shortcut for JAWS to shell:startup (which is where the user’s startup programs reside).

I’m glad you don’t have a problem on your system, but do realize that every system is a little different and on some systems this is an issue which Freedom Scientific is aware of.
