It depends on what "open" and "the folder from desktop" exactly means here. Both terms could mean a variety of different things, so please add more information by appending it to the original question by editing. I've seen too many important information hidden in comments or pseudo-answers, where the readers do not expect it.

Hi!

You get the users directory in Windows with

[~, userdir] = system('echo %USERPROFILE%')

The desktop folder is in this folder.

If you're using windows, you can do

winopen(folderName);

where folderName is a string, for example 'D:\MyData'. It will bring up Windows Explorer open to the folder that you specified.
