Start Windows Explorer then click “Tools” and then “Folder Options.” On the next screen, go to “View” tab then select “Show hidden files and folders” under “Hidden files and folders” section.

Click “OK” then you should be able to see hidden files and folders. This will only allow you to view normal files and folders that were hidden. Protected operating system files are still hidden. Now, if you want to hide a particular file or folder, simply right-click the file or folder and select “Properties.”

On the next screen, in “General” tab, check “Hidden” at the bottom and then click “OK.” This will hide the file or folder.
