    As per my knowledge by default Microsoft Windows XP will place My Documents folder as the first icon on the your desktop. In this case if you want to place your Windows My Computer icon the first icon in the desktop, then you have to remove My Documents folder from your computer desktop to fix this problem. Just remove My Documents folder from desktops and then refresh your desktop. It automatically placed My Computer icon the first icon.

    Hey as per your answers you have said that you have to use TweakUI in your computer, but you haven't tell me from where I can download this application. I search on the internet but unable to find it. Is is any other process to do this. Because I don't want to install any third party application to do this. If there is no other way instead of using TweakUI the give me the link form where I can download this utility.

    You have to use Tweak UI in your computer to make the Windows My Computer icon the first icon. This PowerToy gives you access to system settings that are not exposed in the Windows XP default user interface, including mouse settings, Explorer settings, taskbar settings, and more. Version 2.10 requires Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows Server 2003.
    To get this application click here.
