Open "Computer"
Open the "C" drive
Open the "Documents and Settings"or "Users" folder.
Open the folder with your username
Right click the folder called "Desktop" then click Copy.

Then paste to the target location you would like to backup.
If you often do those kinds of backup, just try third-party software to make a file image with scheduled backup. Check the detailed guide here.

Then right click and drag the files to the USB in the left pane until it highlights blue. Let go of the right mouse button and choose 'Copy Here'.
