Windows 7: Merging Desktops

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
Merging Desktops

Hi all,

Im sure i've read somewhere that it is possible to have your desktop merged from two different locations. So for example I work at a school and we want to have the desktop created from both the public desktop local to that PC and a desktop folder in the students user area. Then we want to save any changes (shortcuts, work placed there etc) that the student makes to the desktop, in their student user area desktop folder. Do you see what I mean? So the desktop will show shortcuts from both places but only save work and that to their user areas desktop folder.

Anyone have any clue how to do this?

Thanks in advance
