Is there a way to put the Computer icon on the taskbar?

I'm talikng about the icon that looks like a pc tower/monitor and when you click on it you see your ''C'' Hdd. I'd like to have it at the bottom on the taskbar with my libraries folder. I've tried a couple of things and don't seem to work. thanks

You can use BareFoot's method, but for me i tend to use keyboard shortcuts a lot.
The keyboard shortcut for 'Computer' is

'Windows' + 'E'.
