    esto (neutral)/ este (male)/ esta (female)

    Esto es un escritorio / esto es una mesa (This is the objecto you're talking about it is followed by a verb)
    Esta mesa es blanca (it is a demostrative adjetive for femele nouns)
    Este libro está sobre la mesa (it is a demostrative adjetive for male nouns)

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Hope it helps!

    Hola mem286

    Bueno, pensaba que el esto nuetral sigifica this as in "what is this?/¿que es esto?"
    y cuando la respuesta se aplica a un sustantivo asi como el ejemplo tuyo: Esto es un escritorio pero esta es una mesa.

    ¿Me equivoco?

    No, Vicente, no te equivocás. Tu apreciación es correcta.
