How to move .txt file from Linux to my desktop, what is the command? Scp isn't working
Not near enough information to help you. How are you connecting to each machine, what OS is the desktop, etc. Why not just use a service like Google Drive, OneDrive, or DropBox if you're having issues? Or if it's a one-off, just email it to yourself.
Also, what has changed since you posted the question yesterday? You should at least post the error message to get help, because
scp -r smithkthedale@whatever_domain_or_ip:/path/to/your/txtfolder ~/Desktop/
should work. Alternatively try rsync.
