So in our case the code would be
echo This is the best instructable ever!>>C:\Users\%Username%\Desktop\file.txt
echo Thanks to Super_Nerd>>C:\Users\%Username%\Desktop\file.txt

See where the code says file.txt? That is the filename. Feel free to change it to whatever you want. If you don't add an extention it turns into a file. Confusing right? A file is a file with no extention, hence you have to choose what to open it with every time.
