If I right click on my computer C Drive and then click on explore, the first item in the tree in the left hand sidebar is Desktop. All the folders in the desktop are shown at the end of the tree but pdfs, docs and videos which are on the desktop are not shown. Why?

I'm not sure what you are asking...but the desktop items should be viewable from your Document/Settings folder, under your profile. That inludes folders, shorcuts, whatever else may be on the desktop.
