    "Show Hidden Files" In File Explorer Automatically Turns Off


    UPDATE:
    Fixed myself with a couple of registry editing. *Biggrin

    Hey, so I noticed recently I couldn't look at hidden files (and I could for a long time), so I checked the "Show Hidden Files" checkbox. It automatically turned off... Tried a reboot, no progress. I am an admin on my computer, so I can't think of why.

    I have attached a video of this happening.

    Any help is appreciated!

    :)

    I connected mine to the computer so I could explore the files a little bit easier. The "volatile" folder was a hidden file, so you may have to "show hidden files."
