How to make desktop a default selection

Hello
Please see the prntscrn to see that I do not have desktop as a default selection. I can scroll down but my children and wife will not remember to do so. How do I make it a default?
Thank you

A bit over half way down the page is a section titled: Using PlacesBar Editor which may be easier to follow.

You could also add the desktop to favorites. Just locate the desktop in the navigation pane and drag it to Favorites.
