Depends on how strict you are. Desk can be table. Skrivebordet / bordet / pult. Or?

Well, yes it can. Although, keep in mind: "bordet" is essentially just "the table" "skrivebordet" can also mean "the desktop", as in the desktop on your computer.

Er datamaskins "folders" også mapper ?

Why is this skrivebordet rather than skrivebord?

"Ditt skrivebord", eller "skrivebordet ditt".

Word order on possessives.

Assuming it's contextually correct, could "mappene dine" be a substitite if it's unspoken-but-known that the folders are 'theirs'?
