    Show hidden folders not working - already ran sfcscannow


    Hi all, Windows 10 pro Build 1809 updated -

    issue is with in the folder options for windows 10 - selecting Show hidden folders and files does not work. I did a reset folders and also restore default does not work. there is no bullet point in the selection (blackdot) indicating its selected i go to select it and hit apply nothing happens.

    i have bitdefender free AV installed, i have USB external drives setup 3 of them and other ssd and m2 drives installed.

    *Sad

    :)

    Hidden folders

    I installed `Kane and Lynch` on my PC twice in Program Files(x86) folder but I can`t find them (2 folders with game). But free space on my HDD is lower. So there`re those folders on my hdd. I use option `unhide` hidden folders but still can`t find them. Any suggestions? How can i delete those hidden folders?

    When I run istallation for this game I can see those folders in Program Files(x86) folde.

    I`m using Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

    Show hidden folders not working - already ran sfcscannow

    Show hidden files button is not working on Windows 10.0.14393

    Hello John,

    Windows contains some system files and folders which are hidden by default. However, there are times when you may need to show these hidden files and folders. If the option is not available or not working as it's supposed to, we recommend that you follow these
    steps:

    • Type File Explorer Options on Cortana's search field and press
      Enter.
    • Click the View tab.
    • Under Files and Folders, check the Hidden files and folders option.
    • Try to toggle it then hit Apply.
    • If you need to also show the system protected hidden files and folders too, uncheck the
      Hide protected operating system files option.

    Let us know if you will need further assistance.
