    Desktop is located in your home folder as a folder.
    Execute this
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    /home/USERNAME/Desktop/

    Desktop must be capitalized. Or use Places > Desktop to open the folder directly.

    /home/USERNAME/Desktop
    ~ sign represents /home/UserName only.

    Yes, of course. But "cd ~/Desktop" is not going to allow him to specify the directory within Limewire's settings menu. I wasn't trying to one-up you or anything.
