Best you can do from my experience is to a) Place a Computer shortcut on your desktop, and b) Pin this shortcut to the Explorer shortcut in the taskbar.

I forgot to add: Once you've pinned Computer to the Explorer shortcut, right-click on it instead of left-clicking. You will then see the shortcut to Computer at the top of the list as a Pinned shortcut.

Isn't a Computer icon on the desktop good enough?
