    Default What is this Symbol?

    I found this symbol in Donna> Documents>
    When I click on it I find the following information:

    [.ShellClassInfo]
    LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21770
    IconResource=%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-112
    IconFile=%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll
    IconIndex=-235

    Could someone please tell me what it pertains to?
    From what I am seeing it looks to be associated with a downloaded icon of some sort that is on my desktop.

    I guess someone has not followed steps to hide system files!

    Desktop.ini is in every folder you open. It is basically a layout configuration file, and is normally hidden.

    Click tools > folder options along the top of the folder ( you may need to press [alt] once to make the option appear.)

    click the 'view' tab

    check 'hide system files' and place the bullet point in the option next to 'do not show hidden files' and 'ok' out.
    Always remember you're unique.


    ...Just like everyone else!
