This is an article about that issue, it's in Arabic but you can translate it using Google Translator.

Hello Hasnath,

I am sorry to say that this goes again the philosophy of elementary developers.
This is left out because of the clean work flow and some other reasons.

Never the less it is still possible. But it may break your installations or cause problems.
You could take a look at 'nautilus' : http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/154234/how-do-i-show-desktop-icons-in-elementary-os

We will try to help u, but there is also the possibility that it is not stable enough for day to day work.
Pleas note that nautilus is not maintained by elementary developers.

Kind regards,
Kay
