What I used to use is a shortcut on the Start Menu. Right click on the start button and select open. Right click again and select New, Shortcut. Enter the location C:\Windows\Desktop then give it a name and your desktop is a shortcut. There also is a way to have it expand into a menu but I can't remember how to do it.
