Want My Computer or My Docutments icons back on the desktop rather than on the Start menu? You can control whether they display using the Control Panel:
Double-click Display icon
On the Desktop tap:
Click Customize Desktop button
On the General tap, you can select to display on the Desktop one or more of the following:

My Documents
My Computer
My Network Places
Internet Explorer

You can also drag and drop icons from the Start menu to the Desktop. For My Pictures and My Music, a drap and drop will copy the entire folder. Drag and drop the other icons such as My Computer, My Documents, or My Network Places will place a shortcut to the folder on the desktop.

You can also:

Click Start
Right-click the My Computer icon (or other Start menu icon)
From the shortcut menu, select Show on Desktop
