Are you working with a server? The file path would have to be visible from the server.
Which version of SAS are you running? University Edition uses 1) Linux path descriptions and 2) the file system starts with the shared folder and not the desktop, the file would have to be in the shared folder set up in the VM AND file path and names are case sensitive.
Generally "desktops" are very poor places for data files. Learn your file system and put them somewhere meaningful. And doesn't "USERS" have an actual user name afterwards?

If you are using SAS UE or a server-based SAS, this:
proc import datafile= "C:\Users\Desktop\bankmarketing.csv"
can never work, as neither the UE virtual machine nor a server can "see" your C: drive.
So it is now essential that you reveal which SAS environment you are using.
