Steve, you're kidding me?  Even I know that command, nothing will budge it!

Hi Steve

No I don't.  I've tried sending it to the Recycle Bin, I've even tried using
the delete option in the menu instead of using the keyboard shortcut, and it
doesn't delete.  It seems to be in each Dropbox folder.

Kind regards,

Hi Jackie,

When you attempt to delete it, do you not get a message asking if you want
to continue as administrator?  Just press Alt+Y when you get that message.

They are junk that MS leaves around as far as I can tell.

All the best

Steve

I've noticed that a file called Desktop.ini has appeared in each of my
Dropbox folders, and it won't let me delete it from any of them.  Does
anyone know how I can get rid of it, or what its purpose there might be?
I've only noticed this over the last few days, it definitely hasn't been
there longer than that.

Thanks for any help.

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown
