Windows 7: Missing "Desktop" option in the left menu

Missing "Desktop" option in the left menu

I'm not sure what I did.. few days ago.. in my half sleep I was trying to delete few files using Shift+Del .. but my mistake it looks like I deleted or removed the Desktop option from the left menu or Hierarchy tree (don't know what exactly to call it), as it got selected some how.

just a screenshot, hopefully this gives a better explanation than my wording:



I'm unable to see the option in the drop down address bar either. I've been forced to open Desktop using "Show The Desktop" option.

Is there a way I can get the desktop option in the Hierarchy Tree somehow ?

*sorry for the bad english

Open your user folder and just drag the Desktop folder over to the navigation pane under favorites.
