USB drive icon on desktop (only when USB drive is pluged and active)

Hello guys!!
I have a question. I am very much interested if there is a way to make the USB flash
work and functions like in Mac OS or Ubuntu??? What exactly I mean is to be able to see the USB drive icon on the desktop as soon as I plug the USB drive!
Thank you
