Click on start, go to the 'my documents' icon and right click, you should then have a show on desktop option, click on that and the 'my documents' folder should appear on the desktop.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Or...

right click anywhere on the desktop, select 'properties'
Select the 'desktop' tab
Select 'Customize Desktop' button
tick the check boxes of each item you want to show on the desktop
Hit 'OK' and 'OK' again.

Spoilt for choice!

Sorry, was just trying to help didn't see how old this post was.

Didn't mean to bring it back from the dead.
