How To Create A desktop.ini File
Firstly, the folder that the
desktop.ini file is going to live needs to be set to be a system folder. A system folder is “read-only” and also enables the special behavior of the
desktop.ini file. You can make a folder a system folder by typing the following on the command-line:
attrib +s FolderName
Then create a file in the folder called
desktop.ini and open it with a text editor.
Adding An InfoTip To A Folder
InfoTips are descriptive comments that you can associate with a folder. They appear in Windows Explorer when you hover over a folder, or are displayed in the extra information section when you click on a folder.
InfoTips are added to the
desktop.ini file that resides in the folder in question. They should be added under the
[.ShellClassInfo] title, and follow the syntax:
[.ShellClassInfo] InfoTip=My descriptive comment about the folder here.
