    Win 10 pictures remain hidden


    Frustrated ! Dang it's mostly from this lock down stay at home where this C 19 has been over blown over done and it's now at a stage that there really are some politics and the big V that they are waiting on is NOT going to be what they think or (if they do) ok, well i've been staying at home too long and those miserable masks are unhealthy too...

    Which leads to working at home and i hid my photos because i wanted some privacy and couldn't get them all the way back. I was following a video but it was a little fast paced w/out vocal so, i lost track but some of the folders are clear but some are "dimmed" or it shows up in the properties as a gray box hidden but filled in so that's the clue of that kind of test right?

    Any ideas or suggestions i might be able to fix the hidden? I followed back and forth on a couple sites that seem to offer the directions but i struck out and probably just need to reset the folder options.

    :)

    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    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date.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.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

  4. Win 10 pictures remain hidden

    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.
