A Windows weakness

Thinking like a Mac-user again, I came up with this.

If, in Windows XP, the Desktop is, as it is in Mac OS X, a legitimate and discrete folder, then why, when one has "Command Prompt Here" and "Terminal Here" type patches to their context menu, is one unable to use them by simply right-clicking on some unoccupied space in the Explorer Desktop?

A bit like a long-term Windows user must feel on first using GNU/Linux. At least I have Cygwin to give some sense of familiarity. There's no doubt that I feel more at home on Linux, in particular Slackware, than I do on Windows. But, having said that, I still intend to keep XP, for the sake of variety.
