How to copy imported file to Desktop

I am quite new to Terminal programming and am therefore stuck with a very elementary problem:

Having built Example 3-1 in “I_Wish_RPi_r11-July2016”, I put the resulting folder on a USB stick and connected the stick to the running Raspberry Pi 3. Here I start File Handling and get a window listing various entities on its left side, among these media/pi/Test Hello. I am now supposed to copy Test Hello to the Desktop, - but numerous attempts with “cp” in Terminal have failed. How do I perform this copying operation?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What have you tried with cp?

Here is some Linux Commands

Hope this helps

Thanks, Beatrix and Brian,

I shall try taking it from there.
