Here's another way to go about it:
1. Make the file as per normal with notepad.
2. Save the file named "name here".ini, this will become "name here".ini.txt .
3. Go to your Windows folder options and uncheck to hide known extensions (numerous Internet articles will explain exact steps).
4. Select your new "name here".ini.txt, press F2 on your keyboard, delete the ".txt" part of the file name, Windows will ask about changing the extension, answer yes. Presto, instant ini file.
That should help and as a bonus, no more files hiding as picture.jpg.exe (you just see picture.jpg and initially think it's safe) containing bad things, as you can now see the real extension (this is a known issue from Windows 95 days, it still persists, even though the fix is that easy to do).
