Hide desktop.ini on desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I want to see all files in explorer, so I put a check mark in that option. I did this in Windows 95, 98, Me, 2000 and XP, and It worked correctly.

    But now I see 2 desktop.ini files on my desktop. As this did not happen under the former Windows versions it must be possible to have these files hidden on the desktop. I ask the developpers to return to XP's display mode of hidden files so that the ugly desktop.inis are no more shown.

  • One of them is in the Public (All Users) Desktop folder, one is in your personal Desktop folder.  I always just delete them.  They are not really needed unless certain kinds of customizations have been made to the Desktop.
