What is the concept of new super hidden system file in the new operating system of windows? From which version is this available to users? There was already an existing concept of hiding the files, and then what is different in this new super hidden system file. Does it deal with only system file? Where can I find this new option in windows? How can I know that my operating system support this option? Can someone give me details on it?

What is meant by Super Hidden system file

Hello,

Super hidden system file means system protected files that are exclusively sensitive and for the OS only. No change or modification to these files are strongly discouraged or OS might crash. Those files are kept hidden until you unhide them from Explorer’s settings. These includes DLL files, pagefiles and much more.

But you can easily create such files of your own. By changing the attribute of your required file, you can create a super hidden system file. Those you created are safe to deal with.

1. Start Command Prompt.

2. Run the following command:
attrib +s +h “<path_to_your_file>”

In order to view those files,

1. From Start menu, click “Computer”.

2. From Windows Explorer, press “Alt” button.

3. From the top ribbon, click Tools >> Folder Options.

4. Open “View” tab.

5. Uncheck “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)”.

6. Click Apply >> OK.

Now, you can see your file.

To change the file/folder into normal one again,

1. Start Command Prompt.

2. Run the following command:
attrib -s -h “<path_to_your_file>”
