Use another directory instead of ~/Desktop

Hi all,

This is my first post here so please be patient :-)

KDE, by default, uses ~/Desktop for the contents of the desktop. Is it possible to change that path?

Basically I want it to be my home directory (that is ~) because that might improve the usability of KDE (according to a post I read somewhere) as the directories in my home (only around 10) will directly appear on my desktop (if you see what I mean)
