    Probably GetDesktopWindow.

    Code:
    using System;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
    
    namespace Test
    {
        public class MyTest
        {
            [DllImport("user32")]
                 public static extern IntPtr  GetDesktopWindow();
            static void Main()
         {
                IntPtr  hDesktop = GetDesktopWindow();
    			System.Console.WriteLine("Desktop Handle  is {0,4:X}", hDesktop.ToInt32());
         }
       }
    }
