One of the new changes in Vista and Windows 7 is that each user actually has their own *Home* directory that is both meant to be used and is easily accessible. In the 2K and XP versions there was a hidden home directory and you were NOT to mess around with it.
Some of the new features such as the Downloads directory are only accessible through your Home directory and for this reason it makes perfect sense to pop an icon for it right onto your desktop.
To do this click on the Start button and then right click on your user name. Chose the *Show on desktop* option.
Your home directory should now be showing on your desktop
Another way to achieve this is to right click on the desk top, choose *Personalise* from the menu and then the *Desktop Icons* on the left hand pane
On this screen you simply check the box for the user’s files and then add the icon to the desktop.
