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


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

if I want to copy the file 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 c:\users<user name here>\desktop
1 File(s) copied



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