I want to add Administrative Tools folder Icon to Desktop. I know that you can create a shortcut to it from control panel, but thats not what i want. I want an icon like the My Computer Icon (Not a Shortcut)

Is there a way? like a registry tweak or something? i have seen it before, but a while ago.

can anyone help?
