View Hidden Files in Windows

By default, the windows file manager is set to not show hidden folders or files. You can change the default behavior by doing the following:

  1. Open File Explorer options (cortana search for file explorer)

  2. Click on the "View" tab and put a mark next to the "Show hidden files and folders" option.

  3. Click the "Apply" button and then click "OK."

  4. The setting is per folder so you may want to click “Apply to Folders” to show all hidden folders.
