How to turn hidden folders off or on

tech-tricksYou may find you’re searching for a particular folder and you can’t seem to find it. Or you need to hide a folder and you’re not sure how.


It may be you can’t find that folder because it’s “hidden”.


To make hidden folders accessible in Windows, head to the Control Panel and then open “folder options”. Then click on the “view” tab and then in the bottom part of the screen, click on the “show hidden files” option.


You can also make it that hidden files are not shown – this can be changed at any time.
