Why Can't I See My Hard Drive On My Desktop In OS X?

Question:

I just installed OS X Lion but now I can't see the hard drive, just all the files. How do I get my hard drive to show on the desktop?

Answer:

If your hard drive doesn't appear on the desktop, go to the Finder (you can select it in your dock or just click on your desktop) and select Finder->Preferences (Command-,). Make sure the "Hard Disks" box is checked and it should show on your desktop.
