          In the import dialog you choose c:\users\name-of-the-user\desktop. This is for Windows. If you are using a Mac I can't help, because I'm only use Windows.

          Here is a screenshot from a German Lightroom

            As Axel stated, you need to find the actual folder name of your desktop.


            I add that I consider this to be a poor strategy with Lightroom, because you can only fit a certain number of photos onto your desktop before it becomes full; you have to move the photos (which is an extra unnecessary step), and for some reason, many users seem to have great difficulty doing this. Also, a superior strategy is to put the photos in their final destination folder straight out of the camera rather than putting the photos on your desktop and later putting them elsewhere.

              Primero, crear una carpeta en el escritorio, mover la/s foto/s a la carpeta.
              En Lightroom en importar, buscar en el panel izquierdo árbol de carpetas en Mac. Macintosh HD/Users/nombre de usuario/Desktop/carpeta creada.
              En Windows. C:/Users/nombre de usuario/escritorio/carpeta creada.
              Luego en importar
