The Desktop is the full-screen display where Windows activity takes place. The Windows desktop is similar to your desk. On your desk, you probably have items that you use daily, your current work, and various tools that you need to work. Your Windows desktop includes the same items: you have icons for Ellucian, Outlook, and other programs you use daily, and the icon for your Recycle Bin, which is similar to your trash can.
