The include path is the path that PHP searches when you include/require a file, not when you write to a file.

include_path Specifies a list of directories where the require, include, fopen(), file(), readfile() and file_get_contents() functions look for files.

Just give the complete path:

file_put_contents("c:/users/shimantta/Desktop/test.txt", "Hello World. Testing!");

This will only work if the user running the script or the user running the webserver has permission to write to that directory.
