"All Users" desktop in Windows 7?

Good morning,
In previous version of Windows and Windows Server, there was an "All Users" folder under the "Documents and Settings" directory.  We could then drop items we wanted everyone to see onto the desktop under the "All Users" folder.

In Windows 7/Server 2008, I can't find a similar folder under the "Users" directory (the Public folder doesn't seem to have a "desktop.").

Can anyone tell me if there is an "All Users" desktop in Windows 7/Server 2008?

Its a hidden folder... make sure you can view hiddne files and folders.

You can then find it at C:\Users\Public\Desktop
