    Finder Preferences controls that.

    1. Click the desktop.
    2. Choose Finder > Preferences, and then click General.
    3. In the "Show these items on the desktop" section, select the items you want to appear on your desktop, such as hard disks and external disks.

    Have you configured any settings as of yet?

    Go to Finder>Preferences and click the General tab. There, you can choose which disks appear on your desktop.

    No. Click your Desktop or the Finder icon in the Dock to make Finder the active application. It's the active one whenever it's name is in the menu bar next to the :apple:

    Now click Finder next to the :apple: in the menu bar and click Preferences.
