    You can save a file with any extension. You just cannot delete protected files and folders that Windows needs to use, just like any OS. It is there to protect the OS from the end user.
    Would I also be protected from accidentally moving one of the sub folders to another folder in the system 32 folder?

    Again, you cannot move or change any files or folders that are protected by the OS, to keep the user from messing up the OS.

    "Is it possible to move anything inside the "Windows" folder (like system 32, system sub folders, or the windows folder itself) onto the desktop"

    The, so far unasked question in this back-and-forth is, Why would you want to do this ? What are trying to achieve ? As, has been pointed out, the OS looks in these folders for the files that it needs to run and they can't be redirected w/o serious consequences. DON'T !
