  2. Change file attribute to 'unhide'

    Hello Walt,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to change the attribute of any file/folder to unhide.

    Step A: Show Hidden files

    1. Open Windows Explorer(win logo key+E) or My computer.

    2. Now click on View on top of the window.
    3. Untick ‘Hidden items’ in the options.

    Step B: Change file attribute

    1. Once the hidden file is located, right click on the file/folder you want to change the attribute for.

    2. Go to ‘properties’, untick the box facing hidden.

    3. Now, Click on ‘apply’ and then ‘ok’.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank You.

  4. changing file and folder attributes

    Folder and file attributes

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft community.

    To view or to remove the Read-only or the System attributes of folders.

    Warning: If you remove the Read-only or System attribute from a folder, it may appear as a ordinary folder and some customizations may be lost. For example, Windows customizes the Fonts folder and provides a special folder
    view that permits you to hide variations, such as bold and italic. It also permits you to change the folder's view settings in ways that are specific to fonts. If you remove the Read-only and System attributes of the Fonts folder, these customized view settings
    are not available. For folders that you have customized by using the Customize tab of the folder's
    Properties dialog box, the folder icon and other customizations may be lost when you remove the Read-only attribute.

    If a program cannot save files to a folder with the Read-only attribute, such as My Documents, change the Read-only attribute to System by using the Attrib command at a command prompt.

    Press Windows key + X and click
    Command Prompt (Admin)


    To remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute, use the following command:

    attrib -r +s drive:\<path>\<foldername>

    For example, to remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute for the C:\Test folder, use the following command:

    attrib -r +s c:\test

    Be aware that some programs may not operate correctly with folders for which the System attribute and the Read-only attribute are set. Therefore, use the following command to remove these attributes:

    attrib -r -s c:\test

    Hope this will be helpful.

    If you still have further queries.

    Pease reply us and we will be happy to help you.
