In fact, the offending file can be deleted (per method 1) using that same Save As dialog box; just select the file and press the delete key, then close notepad without saving the text.

You are welcome.

The desktop.ini file should be recreated by the Operating System (OS) or an app if and when it is needed. Hopefully, the OS or app will assign the correct file attributes to keep the ini file from opening with each boot. Sometimes apps will remove those file attributes and change the file's contents while the app is being installed or uninstalled... then the installer program fails to replace the file attributes :-(
