    View all files and folders
    View system files

    2 areas in there to adjust

    Then close the hard drive folder and re-open the hard drive folder (ie refresh)

    Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View tab

    Show hidden files and folders (selected)
    Hide Protective operating system files (untick)


    Download this
    Read the text and use, it's quicker
    A nifty little program
    You must refresh the folder too "View - Refresh"
