Well the simple answer is "wherever you saved it" - if you saved a Word or Excel document somewhere on your pc would you expect others to know exactly where you had saved it :-) I'm assuming you're using Windows here because of the file path name but I could be wrong. Anyway GnuCash thinks you saved it to "Users/yvonnePC/Desktop/Gnucash Accounts.gnucash" so will be looking in "Users/yvonnePC/Desktop/" to find your "Gnucash Accounts" file and open it.
Have you renamed the accounts file after closing GnuCash ? If so how do you expect GnuCash to know that you did this. Did you save it to the desktop, close GnuCash and then subsequently move the file manually after you closed GnuCash ? If you did how could you expect GnuCash to know this ? GnuCash will only know about it if you had done a "Save As" and saved it somewhere else from within GnuCash it doesn't know about anything you might have done outside of GnuCash. You can double click on the file when you find it again and it should open ok in GnuCash. If neither of the above possibilties are likely and you are running Windows you can just open windows explorer and use the search function (top right ?) to find your "Gnucash Accounts.gnucash" file - it might take a little longer but it should come up with it unless you've copeid it to a usb drive etc that's no longer plugged in :-) I guess you're running windows from the file path name - it's not a good idea to save it to the desktop as GnuCash will want to create all it's log flles there as well - far better to create a "GnuCash" folder/directory in your Documents folder and keep it all there without cluttering up your desktop.
