It does exactly what the page says there

File preference items allow you to copy, modify the attributes of, replace, and delete files. (To configure folders rather than individual files, see Folders Extension.) Before you create a File preference item, you should review the behavior of each type of action possible with this extension.

So take a look at my screen shot for example.  I'm copying  all the files in the test folder to the documents folder.

Thanks

is this like creating a logon script that copies a file from the network share to a user computer?

So how can be the file item GPO used, for instance to copy the pcf file(cisco vpn client profilr) to end users computers desktop?

You would select that pcf file and then have it copy to the desktop folder.  You may have to use the wildcard like I did in the screenshot so that you are able to select a folder.  It looks like the GUI for this GPP could definitely be improved.
