I want to use the cmd to copy file to a folder on the desktop but I don't know the path to it.
In XP it was C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop

It doesn't appear to be that way in Vista.

Thanks in advance.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users is now C:\Users\Public in Vista. Everything else is pretty much the same.
