I was just coding some C# stuff and I came across an issue.

My code is:
string desktop = @"C:\Users\" + Environment.UserName + @"\Desktop";
string localFilename = @"C:\Users\" + Environment.UserName + @"\Desktop\image.jpg";

I tried it like this and it worked fine:
string desktop = @"C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop";
string localFilename = @"C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\fronk.jpg";

But I need it so others can use it, and therefore cannot use my username. Please could I have some help, thank you.

    If you want to get the user Desktop folder, use :

    string sDesktop = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Desktop);
