In addition to the files and folders we use in our work, there are also elements that are hidden by the system. In this post, we will focus on hiding any information from prying eyes, as well as setting up hidden files to be visible.
1️⃣. To hide files or folders, you need to use the Hidden attribute in their properties window. To do this, open the Properties dialog box of the desired item (ALT + ENTER). In the Attributes section at the bottom of the window that opens, activate the Hidden item, confirm the change by clicking OK, ready!
2️⃣. Launch the Control Panel (WIN + R → control → ENTER) to set the hidden items to be visible. In the window that opens, go to the Parameters Explorer section (or WIN + R → control folders → ENTER). In the Vid tab of the dialog box that opens - activate it by selecting one of the items, such as show or do not show hidden files, click OK and save this change, ready!
Folder settings for Windows 10/11 can be called through any launched Explorer window. To do this, go to the Vid tab of the menu bar at the top of the window and click on the Parameters button.
📌 PS: Ordinary users simply don’t appreciate Total Commander (https://t.me/itspecuz/4762). In most cases, Windows Explorer will not be able to show files and folders that have been hidden due to the virus, and Total Commander will always be able to display this information (if they are really on a flash drive and hidden). delivered
Procedure for displaying files hidden in Total Commander: In the menu above, in the bar Views → Advanced settings (stands first) → Show hidden and system files: vkl / vykl (there is a fifth, yellow exclamation mark at the bottom of the list).
