Q: Why does desktop.ini file open in Notepad when I start up? This thread is locked from future replies

Whenever I startup my laptop (which is running XP Professional), the desktop.ini file opens in a Notepad file. How do I stop that from happening?

 

Thanks!

Answer

A:

You do not need to change any attributes on these files.  All you need to do is set show system files to off in explorer.  Hidden files can still be on.  Then, they will not appear on the desktop, but they will appear when you search by using the files explorer.  And everything still works.
