Java program to get the desktop Path

     

In this example program we have to get the desktop path of the system. In the java environment we can get the desktop path also with the system's property. For getting the desktop path we have to add the "/Desktop" string into the property value of user.home.

Here is the full example code of GetDesktopPath.java as follows:

 

 

 

GetDesktopPath.java

import java.util.*;
import java.lang.*;
import java.net.*;

public class GetDesktopPath
{
  public static void main(String args[]) {
  try{
  String desktopPath = System.getProperty("user.home""/Desktop";
  System.out.print(desktopPath.replace("\\""/"));
  }catch (Exception e){
  System.out.println("Exception caught ="+e.getMessage());
  }
  }
}

 

Output:

C:\javaexamples>javac GetDesktopPath.java

C:\javaexamples>java GetDesktopPath
C:/Documents and Settings/Administrator/Desktop
C:\javaexamples>

This code cannot be used on XP (non English); because ${user.home]/Desktop path don't exist on this system.
