What is INI file?
An Initialization File is a text file that contains the settings for a program when it is installed. These files are stored in the same directory as the executable file. The Windows 7 operating system uses this file extension and stores all of the basic system settings in it. These files help to make sure that the computer is compatible with devices, software, or other software programs already installed on your laptop or desktop computer
