    Invisible folder


    I copied a folder called Electronics and all its many subfolders from another PC (which runs XP) using USB stick L:.

    Then I opened it here in my Win 10 Pro PC. The subfolder L:\Electronics i7\Arduino, clearly exists, and I can open its files. But its parent does not display it! I've opened and closed and tried various views with the same baffling result. And searches with any tool for any file within it always correctly locates it. But the Electronics folder will just not show it.

  2. Can't create an invisible folder

    Invisible folder 36dab9ed-81fa-4ffc-80dc-22a766051d4f.png

    I wanted to create an invisible folder, but if I select any of 4 invisible icons it creates a folder with a black square icon.

    Any idea how to fix it?

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.
