    Notepad error on startup


    Hi All,
    New to the forum and hoping for a solution to a small but annoying problem.
    I have Windows 10 version 1909 (OS build 18363 778)

    Each time I start up my laptop I get the following, notepad opens with the message

    C:\users\my name\appdata\roaming\microsoft\windows\startmenu\programs\startup\desktop.ini

    I've tried all I can with my limited tech knowledge to stop this but failed, I know it's not critical but it is annoying, any help would be most welcome.
    Thanks

    :)

    I followed your suggestion but wasn't able to find Notepad listed on the startup. There are some listed as program but don't know which ones it could be.

    Thank you for your message. I have already looked at the startup menu, but it does not appear on there. When I look at the list of apps I get via Settings >Apps, Notepad does not appear on that list.
