Unable to display Hidden files and folders



Issue


I can't see the hidden files and folders even after making them visible in the Folder option ! What should I do ?

Solution

  • Start --> Run, then type Regedit
  • Go to
  • KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHO WALL
  • Double click on CheckedValue and set it's value to 1
  • HKEY_LM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\EXPLORER\ADVANCED\FOLDER\HIDDEN\NOHIDDEN
  • Double click on CheckedValue and set it's value to 0.
