One common use of the desktop.ini file is to set custom folder icons. However, it can be utilized for more. The desktop.ini file contains numerous attributes, but the following custom attributes are the most common:
ConfirmFileOp: Set this entry to 0 to avoid a â€œYou Are Deleting a System Folderâ€ warning when deleting or moving the folder.
IconFile: If you want to specify a custom icon for the folder, set this entry to the iconâ€™s file name. The .ico file extension is preferred, but it is also possible to specify .bmp files, or .exe and .dll files that contain icons.
IconIndex: Set this entry to specify the index for a custom icon. If the file assigned to IconFile only contains a single icon, set IconIndex to 0.
InfoTip: Set this entry to an informational text string. It is displayed as an infotip when the cursor hovers over the folder. If the user clicks the folder, the information text is displayed in the folderâ€™s information block, below the standard information.
