  1. You can try right click>Properties and uncheck Read only, and ok.

    You can also try copying it with cmd.
    Go to start>run and type cmd,
    Type cd C:\ and press enter
    Type copy C:\windows\Docum~1\Your_User\Desktop\Your_file_name.the_file's_extension C:\Your_folder and press enter


    But, I have to ask, does you original desktop file come from a cd? :hello:

    1. I assume you have ownership of the folder.

    2. Why not drag the file directly to the folder ?

    3. using cmd is completely unnecessary.
