You can use Folder redirection and redirect the desktop to home drive.

Check these docs. It may be of help to you

You can redirect desktop to a network drive (e.g. homdir\desktop) with a folder redirection policy.  You can hide the C: drive and you can redirect my documents to a network drive (e.g. home dir).  Any of these any good for you?
