If I understand correctly,
it is because the current directory of the LilyPond's shortcut is
set to the all users desktop (C:\Users\Public\Desktop).

The all users desktop can be written only with administrator privileges.
LilyPond writes PDF etc. to the current directory.
Usually, it can not write because it does not have administrator privileges.

One of the following can be workaroud.
  Double click *.ly file instead of drag-and-drop to LilyPond shortcut.
  Empty current directory settings instead of C:\Users\Public\Desktop.

Both of them, LilyPond will write PDF etc. to the same directory
as the *.ly file.

I don't have English Windows,
but perhaps, current directory settings in English Windows is
``Start in'' in shortcut properties.
