I’m not asking you to view files of others without their permission because the privacy of one has the utmost importance. Sometimes, in a helpless situation we have to do it because there is no other way to complete our desired task, like my Windows OS was encountering an error that some Windows file is missing and after lots of research I came to know that it was because of a core Windows file that was hidden, I make this file viewable and after that the issue got resolved. To resolve this issue I took help from Pingzic website and found it a great technology guides’ hub.
However, it isn’t necessary that one only needs to view the files and folders hidden by the system. Sometimes, you or any other person who uses your computer may also hide a file or folder. After writing on tech tutorials like, scanning computer online, resizing images and converting them into .pdf format, today I have shared two methods of viewing the hidden files and folders. These apply to both scenarios discussed above.
1: Click on the file explorer from the taskbar.
2: From the left pane, tap/click on This PC.
1: Click on file explorer, and from left pane tap on This PC option just as above.
4: Finally click on OK, and this will show up the hidden files and folder on your PC.
Now that you have learned how to view the hidden files and folders, you can also hide your important files containing business details or other information. Like I have allotted 30 minutes of time daily in which I quickly go through all of my daily stuff. Then I pile the important data in a particular folder and hide them so that they remain safe, in case any unauthorized person or hacker accesses my device.
