Desktop.ini Tips


  • DESKTOP.INI files can be exploited by viruses, malware and spyware.
    A well-known DESKTOP.INI virus is Redlof.A
    Another one, W32/HLLP.Philis.ini, creates _DESKTOP.INI files.
    So keep Windows up-to-date and use a good firewall and virusscanner.
  • If a folder does NOT have a desktop.ini file, do the following:
    Right click in an empty area of the folder
    Click Properties
    Click Customize tab
    Click Change Icon button
    Select the normal folder icon
    Click Apply, OK
    Now there is a DESKTOP.INI file
    Delete the icon information and it's ready to use.
  • Be careful when copying and deleting DESKTOP.INI files to and from WINDOWS SYSTEM folders.
  • To delete DESKTOP.INI files:
    attrib desktop.ini -h -s
    del desktop.ini
  • When DESKTOP.INI files open at startup on the desktop, they are probably located in the startup folder of the startmenu. DESKTOP.INI files are normally hidden, but not in this case.
    So you have to set the hidden attribute on the DESKTOP.INI files.
    Or when they are already hidden, go to "Folder Options" and make them invisible. (See below)
  • DESKTOP.INI are hidden by default.
    To show hidden files in Windows XP, do the following:
     1. Double-click on the My Computer icon.
     2. Select the "Tools" menu.
     3. Click "Folder Options".
     4. After the new window appears, select the "View" tab.
     5. Put a checkmark in the checkbox labeled "Display the contents of system folders."
     6. Under the "Hidden files and folders" section, select the button labeled "Show hidden files and folders".
     7. Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled "Hide file extensions for known file types".
     8. Remove the checkmark from the checkbox labeled "Hide protected operating system files".
     9. Press the Apply button.
     10. Press the "OK" button
     11. Close "My Computer".
