When you start your computer, the desktop.ini file may automatically open (in Notepad) showing the following contents:
[.ShellClassInfo] [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21787
This happens if the hidden attribute for the
desktop.ini file in the
Startup folder is somehow removed. Enable the hidden attribute for desktop.ini in your
Common Startup folders to resolve the issue. To do so, you can use the Command Prompt.
Open an elevated Command Prompt window and run these two commands:
attrib +s +h "%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\desktop.ini" attrib +s +h "%programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\desktop.ini"
