    How to unhide the USER folder in Windows 10


    I want to import my favorites from Internet Explorer but when I check the file path it's under the hidden folder, and my user account is hidden as well. How can I fix it?

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Unable To Unhide Hidden Folders

    solved

    They were marked as system files by virus so i wasnt able to see.. i enabled to view system files in options then i can see folder but yet cant unhide.

    i googled and found solution.

    I tried attrib -s -h folder name & it worked for that folder. Then I tried attrib -s -h /s /d which did all the folders, sub-folders in a single go.

    How to unhide the USER folder in Windows 10

    How do i unhide a windows 10 hidden user account

    Chris,

    If all you did was hide a folder [in File explorer] then all you have to do is unhide that folder. Judging by your description, you have not changed your user account itself i.e. it is a folder that is hidden not the user account.

    • Open File explorer,
    • in the upper-right, click on the dropdown arrow if necessary so that the ribbon is visible,
    • click on the View menu,
    • set the checkbox for Hidden items,
    • navigate to the folder concerned & clear its hidden property,
    • [optionally] clear the checkbox for Hidden items.
