Media Center System Icon on desktop?

Hey People,

Ive searched this forum, and found no info on this subject...

What I'm trying to do is force a "Media Center Icon" on mu desktop, I know this is easily done threw rclick ... "Send To desktop", but I'm looking for a way to make it a system icon, like "My Computer" or the recycle bin, so when i sort the icons bye type it will be one of the first icons on the desktop, getting tired of searching for it.

Unless someone knows how to force any one icon to always take position 1 on the desktop.

Why don't you just pin it to the taskbar instead of searching around for it on the desktop?
