To turn on Active Desktop the Windows 2000 way, select Control Panel-Folder Options (also to be found under the Tools menu of any Explorer window). In the Active Desktop area, select the General tab, then click the Enable Web content on my desktop radio button. Two other ways to turn on Active Desktop are holdovers from Windows 98. You can right-click a blank area of the desktop and select Active Desktop-Show Web Content. You can also right-click a blank space on the desktop, select Properties, and under the Web tab, select Show Web content on my Active Desktop.
