  2. All hidden files turned Un-hidden

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being part of Windows 10.

    I suggest you to re-add them to the hidden items list and check.

    Steps:

    • Right click on the folders to hide, select Properties.
    • Go to General tab, under Attributes check mark the option
      Hidden.
    • Click on Apply and on Ok.

    I suggest you not to use any third party anti-virus software. Try to use Windows Defender.

    Refer: Using Windows Defender

    Hope it helps. Feel free to contact us for further assistance on Windows Operating System, we will be happy to help you.

  3. Why is file explorer not searching hidden folders in the users folder?

    Please pay attention: (shown in picture)

    I've put a file in:
    C:\Users\jorge\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\UnsavedFiles\

    and the same file in:
    C:\Users\anton\Documents

    When I do a File Explorer search for this file in the users folder (c:\users) or inside a user's folder (such as c:\users\anton), it finds the file in Documents, but not in the AppData folder.

    Yet, if I do the same search in C: it returns both files.

    Hidden files are being shown (enabled in File Explorer: view > show hidden files). Appdata is not being indexed (it's listed in the exclusion list in Indexing options).

    Same result in 2 different computers in 1903 and after updating to 1909

    Any help much appreciated *Tongue
