show my computer on desktop

2 posts in this topic

Im writing a autoit program to automate the customization of desktops. One thing I'm missing is that I dont know how to make my computer icon show on desktop other than right clicking it with the mouse and clicking "show on desktop". We all know that mouseclicks and positioning isnt very trustworthy, so does anyone else know of a way to accomplish this?

Thanks!

I may have more questions later
