Need contents of desktop.ini file

Hi Experts

Could somebody with Windows XP and MS Office please post the details of the Desktop.ini file normally found in the folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\<UserName\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Recent

I accidentally deleted mine while deleting the shortcuts to try and resolve a problem, and did so while while holding the shift key.  It's not the end of the world I know, but I would like to restore the folder attributes without reinstalling MS Office or messing with the registry.

Thanks
Bill

I don't know too much about it, but I suspect it will be produced when you choose settings that differ to the normal windows settings... you'll see it in more than just the 'recent' folder... search c:\ for it and you'll find at least one.  I'm always deleting them.

Thank you all.

Philip, that's what I needed.  Got the icon back again.  Apparently no additional functionality apart from being registered as a system folder.
