Desktop.ini Files

The threads I've searched were more than 371 days old so I couldn't
revive them.

Yeah I had a question about this...

These files, basically, their only function is to tell a folder HOW to
display icons, meaning in what view/what icon, to display them as?

In other words, deleting a desktop.ini file does not remove, for
instance, selectable folder icons, because it only tells a folder HOW to
display a file (meaning which icon you chose for the file) but you could
go back and edit the file icon any time later?

Lastly, I'm not sure why these files get transfered, when I'm only
transfering files that I want to transfer, i.e., a couple of music
files, or text files. Why is it telling me that I'm transfering a
"desktop.ini" file when I highlighted 4 music files ONLY, and transfered
it over to another folder?

Thanks!
