Desktop is a ListView. So you need to get a handle to it.

Get the explorer process ID, allocate memory in explorer process for LV_ITEM structure and icon name buffer after that you should allocate memory in explorer process for POINT structure and for Index.

After declaring the LVITEM structure, Point Structure and Index LVITEM structure you should copy them to the explorer process.

Then count the desktop items. Get item index, item name and item location and go for it.

I am a little busy now but if you pass here your begining I shall help you with it.

Well I should have looked deeply:

Using this method, if the file on the desktop is not in the @DesktopDir or the @DesktopCommonDir directory then that file will be double clicked and needs to be visible. That is, not covered by a window.

#include <GuiListView.au3>

Local $hListView = ControlGetHandle(WinGetHandle("Program Manager", ""), "", "SysListView321")
Local $sTextToFind = "Recycle" ; <-- Enter own text here

Local $a = _GUICtrlListView_FindInText($hListView, $sTextToFind)
Local $aItem = _GUICtrlListView_GetItem($hListView, $a)

If FileExists(@DesktopDir & "\" & $aItem[3]) Then
    ShellExecute(@DesktopDir & "\" & $aItem[3])
    ;ConsoleWrite(@DesktopDir & "\" & $aItem[3] & @CRLF)
ElseIf FileExists(@DesktopCommonDir & "\" & $aItem[3]) Then
    ShellExecute(@DesktopCommonDir & "\" & $aItem[3])
    ;ConsoleWrite(@DesktopCommonDir & "\" & $aItem[3] & @CRLF)
    _GUICtrlListView_ClickItem($hListView, $a, "left", False, 2)
