The closest I could get is using a program called Start8 by Stardock. Its freeware at the moment you can get it at -

I am not sure if this is what you want. Bottom left of screen pull out "start" menu - click on local disk - and a screen with computer opens.

If you want an icon on the desk top just drag from "computer" to desk.
