[HOW TO]Display Standard Desktop Icons, NOT shortcuts

Hello all,
I didn't realized that there are no any post in April..

Ok then, this's maye an old trick, but might useful..
Usually on older windows version than XP, there are Standard Desktop Icons, like My Computer, My Documents, My Network Places, and Internet Explorer WHICH AREN'T SHORTCUTS..
But in XP those Icons were moved into Start Menu. And some people only put alternatives on desktop with Shortcuts to those services, because don't know how to display non-shortcut my computer icon on desktop..

And shortcuts don't give as much function as non-shortcuts, shortcuts will only lead you there, but there are no real option for those.

2. Select "destop" tab,

5. "OK" to all.

Tadaa, NON-SHOTCUT My Computer, My Documents, My Network Places, Internet Explorer icons displated on desktop.. U will realized the different between shortcut and non-shortcut icon by Right-Clicking on those different types icon..
