If you’re using Windows 7 and would like to know how to remove the notepad file that displays when you have logged in:
Simply do this:
In the start/run input box type: shell:startup and press enter.
You will probably seen an empty folder, so now you need to go to Organize > Folder and Search options > View
Now untick ‘hide protected operating system files and folders’
You should now see Desktop.ini visible – just delete this file and then re-tick ‘hide protected operating system files and folders’
