Command line crash course exercise 10 windows

Hello, Noob here.
I am having trouble copying a file from one directory to my desktop. I can copy the file into a directory in the same path but not to a completely different directory. Not sure if I’m asking the question correctly either.
Thanks for the help

@andyman

gonna need more info to create an example that will make sense to your situation.

if I want to copy the file python.py from my current(source) directory to my desktop(destination) I do the following, show us what you are doing and the error you get?

C:\Data>xcopy python.py c:\users<user name here>\desktop
C:python.py
1 File(s) copied

C:\Data>

Thanks for the reply. In the mean time I was able to figure it out.
