desktop.ini file showing up on server desktop

Steel Contributor

I have several servers that we use in our environment. They are all setup very similar and runnign Windows Server 2016. I have one server that is now showing a desktop.ini file on the desktop. Not sure why it started showing up or why it is there. Can anyone provide clarification for me. Is there something I need to check on that particular server?


Here is what is inside the desktop.ini file:

Hello @Tim Hunter,


Did you uncheck « Hide protected operating system files » option on this particular server ?
