Your desktop is actually just a specialized folder you can access with Explorer like any other folder. Its location depends on which OS you're running.

For Windows XP it will be in C:\Documents and Settings\your Windows username\Desktop

and for Vista and 7 it will be C:\Users\your Windows username\Desktop

Once there, you can arrange your files and folders as you wish. Any changes you make will be reflected immediately on the actual desktop.

you can also do it in an open window, click a empty space then ctrl and scroll.

thanks for the rep corazon, couldnt leave a message on your homepage , you have messaging switched off, you can change it in user cp if its unintentional.
