Desktop View
If you want access to your Windows Desktop folder when your computer starts, check this out. Open My Computer. If the toolbar doesn't appear in the window, choose View, Toolbar. Now, in the toolbar, select Desktop. Minimize the window. This places the window in the taskbar.

As long as you shut down the system by choosing Start, Shut Down, the Desktop window will remain in the taskbar. If you use F4 to shut down, the window will be closed. Of course, you also have to remember to minimize the window rather than closing it after you use it.
