Desktop "shortcut" missing from Explorer and Common Dialogs

#1
Somehow I managed to remove the "Desktop" item on the shortcut pane in Explorer - which also affects Common Dialog boxes. It is incredibly annoying as I use this shortcut all the time. How do I get it back? I've looked all over but no where has answers! Thanks!

Hi.

You can place the shortcut for the desktop back at this location:

C:\Users\{YourUserAccountNameHere}\Links

If you need a copy of the actual shortcut, it is in the .zip in my attachment.

Thank you for your fast reply. While your answer does work, it's not what I'm looking for. It adds "Desktop" under Favorites, but is not expandable :(

Also, "Show all folders" shows the Desktop, but it is very cluttered. I simply can't stand it.

Any other advice?
