Windows 7: Showing Items on Desktop from 2nd Local Disk?

Showing Items on Desktop from 2nd Local Disk?

Hello everyone,

I have just installed another hard drive into my laptop by replacing the optical disk drive.

To save space on my primary SSD, I will move my movies, musics and pictures onto my Local Disk 2.

How can I show those items on my desktop as well? IMO, I like to keep everything on the desktop that's why I need your help.

Thanks in advance!

Shortcuts. I mean, copy the folder, and then right-click the desktop and choose Paste Shortcut.

Something else you could try.
Go to Windows Explores and find your drive and tick on it.
Located what you are looking for and right click on it and
then select Send To and pick Desktop (create a shortcut)
