I want the path to contain no Russian characters. How to change "Desktop" to English?

Believe it or not, %userprofile%\desktop on Windows is the correct path to the desktop. Another thing is that if there is Cyrillic in the username, then the problem will still remain.

When I open the path to the folder on the desktop, then in this path, instead of the necessary Deskop, I see "Desktop" and the software in which I work does not recognize Russian characters.

    Actually, the desktop is located in the folder:C:\Users\...username...\DesktopYou can use this path -it will direct you to the desktop.

    I need the path to the folder on the desktop, when I open it, to be completely in English.

    C:\Users\Ya\Desktop\NewPapka is the path I copied from my File Explorer (above), opening the folder I just created on my desktop. The path is entirely in English.
