Technically, yes.
You probably won't have permission to create a folder called desktop in the root directory of your C drive, at least not automatically, but you can do that.

Lots of files and folders will be created under c:\desktop.

If you were going to do this on your actual user desktop, like c:\Users\mcLeod\Desktop, it would be very messy and you shouldn't.

You should instead use a subdirectory in that case, like c:\Users\mcLeod\Desktop\NVDA_portable
