I want to the hide the folders & files of shoe but in folder options I click on the "show hide folder & son" does not display the folder hide & files.


Welcome to the Microsoft Answers community.

Forgive me if this is what you've already tried, but I want to just make sure that all these measures have been taken:


Click Start and then click my computer .


On the Tools menu, click Folder Options .


On the view tab, find Advanced settings , and then follow these steps:


Click Show hidden folders and files .


Clear the Hide protected operating system files check box.


Clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box.


Click OK , and then close the window.

If the method above doesn't work for you, you can run your virus scan.

Finally, some people have found a solution in this article:

Show hidden files and folders not working not

Change the settings of the REGISTRY can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the REGISTRY settings configuration can be solved. Changes to these settings are at your own risk.

I hope this helps!

  • cfdirectory showing the folders but not files CF11

    I use the example code cfdirectory right of the Adobe still in CF11 site I can't get to show the files in the directory and all files.  Is this perhaps a security setting in CF11?

    The code is pretty basic:

    < cfdirectory directory = "D:/IIS" name = "dirQuery" action = "LIST" >

    <!-get an array of the names of directories. ->

    < cfset dirsArray = arraynew (1) >

    < cfset i = 1 >

    < cfloop query = "dirQuery" >

    < cfif dirQuery.type IS "dir" >

    < cfset dirsArray [i] = >

    < cfset i = i + 1 >

    < / cfif >

    < / cfloop >

    < cfdump var = "#dirsArray #" >

    < br >

    <!-get-> all in a query of queries directory information.

    < cfquery dbtype = "query" name = "dirsOnly" >

    SELECT * from dirQuery

    WHERE TYPE = "Dir".

    < / cfquery >

    < cfdump var = "" #dirsOnly # ""

    Thank you!


    ColdFusion is behaving as expected. By specifying 'dir' as type, tell you it to display only files. If you want to view the files, and then specify the type as "file".

  • Windows Homer Server Media Center not showing the new files I downloaded

    So I installed WHS2011 and thought that the library would easily work. It seems that the new files I put on the server are not get updated when I try and view them through the Media Center. Also when I serach for libraries on another device, it shows me two homeservers, one who say no files present and the other who has files (but does not update the index!). What is going on? (the file types are the same as the other files that are appearing fine)

    It is a basic installation, the only change I made is to move the directory to a new hard drive and update the WHS settings to point to the serverfolder updated on the new hard drive.

    I checked the settings on the media section of sharing control panel and it's on, I also checked on the dashboard and the media of Stentor is enabled.

    Why are my new files not updated in the index?

    Why two media servers on my other devices?


    Your question would be better suited for the TechNet forums.

    I suggest you to ask your question to the forum Server TechNet for better assistance.

    Thank you.

  • HP Pavilion Elite HPE: Windows Explorer can't see the folders/files

    My computer seems to have nuts. I have several times & suddenly (in minutes) began to receive messages "Windows Explorer is not responding", with choices such as "search solution and restart the program", "stop program", "wait." Also, it happened several times for Firefox.

    Right click on a folder on the desktop will block. In fact, who seemed to start the problem. I wanted to do a right-click & Delete a folder on the desktop.

    Can I use desktop shortcuts & open Office files, but I can't see the contents of the C drive, etc. Looks like it is filling when I click on "Computer", which will display all of the subfolders... a green bar moved from left to right at the top for more than an hour, but still no folders/files are displayed.

    It is now after midnight. I'll leave it as; non-stop. If all goes well, he rebuilds "pointers" or other & will be done by morning.

    Your computer is clean.

    Ok.  I have a DVD that was made of a VHS tape.  There are several VOB files only when you open with Windows Media Player are still drop and are less than an hour long.  I want to take out of hours of video clips and post them to YouTube.  I used WIndows Movie Maker to edit my videos.  When I opened one of the videos with WMM, it will display only 14:41 the vidoes and not all of it.  I've seen the proposed changes to the MPG or WMV file extension.  I made a copy of one of the VOB files and renamed the extension to MPG.  Now when I play this copy of this file, as it is now is only 14:41.  He did the same thing when I tried to change WMV.  I need to know how to get the entire file appears in Movie Maker.  I tried to use Any Video Converter but it will show up only there as a 14:41 file as well.  I copied all the files on the DVD also.  There are two of them. BUP and two. It is of the IFO files.  Here are the videos from a friend of mine who was a boxer.  He passed away this summer and I want to download these videos in tribute to him.  Any help would be great.  Thank you.

    Thanks for the info.  I was think there later that day and I was wondering why when I play all the VOB's to he it's all the same hour on video.  So I opened the first with Movie Maker and added then the following for her, there were five in total.  After you have added all the he composed the entire hour long video.  All I had to do is then save it and now it is in WMV format so now I can modify it.  Thanks for your good help.


    I have a presentation in two days in Tokyo. And I'm panicking.

    I'm on am Intel Mac OS X 10.4.11.

    I have the latest version of Flash Player 10 installed. (Not the new beta version).

    A few years ago, I created a great site in Dreamweaver MX.

    I never had PROBLEMS with the .swf files display until using Dreamweaver CS4.

    I updated my photography portfolios in Adobe Bridge and used Dreamweaver CS4 for link updates.


    Then, show NONE of the .swf files which were still visible.

    There is absolutely NO of Flash content now showing on any page of the site.

    Not even in view in Safari or Firefox browser.

    I downloaded the files with the SCRIPTS folder newly created on my server, and still no .swf file is visible.

    These aren't the FLV files that they are .swf files which were anchored properly and were still visible. So far.

    I have to go to Tokyo in two days and give a presentation of this site.

    What is the problem?

    Attached files view in Dreamweaver CS4. The view in Safari and view in Firefox.

    I'm screwed for a job badly in Tokyo, if I can't get this fixed as soon as POSSIBLE.

    Help, please.

    You download the Scripts?

  • When you try to install Internet Explorer 9 in Vista, got code 80070017 error, SFC/Scannow shows the corrupted files that are not resolved

    I had a lot of trouble with my vista system (the most recent is an error code 80070017 when you try to install the update IE-9).  I ran sfc.exe/scannow and have a CBS file with several currupt files that are not fixed.  I'm over my head from the experience now.  Can someone help me?  Thank you!

    Original title: Vista files corrupt

    Try to run in safe mode.

    If there are files corrupted again after that, you can mount the image file .iso for the same version of Windows, you probably Vista SP2 - OR - put the disc in the drive.

    (Make sure same version x 86 or x 64 also!)

    Then use 7zip to look in the file \Sources\install.wim for files without a problem. Copy and paste from here directly on those on your HARD drive.

  • Lightroom cc import Canon 5DMKII camera does not show the RAW files

    I use LR CC on my desktop and just try to import files directly from the camera (Canon 5DMKII)

    However the import only shows JPG files and not the RAW format

    :-) may not :-) I am not naïve.

    I use the latest version.

    What I found in fact is it might be something related to the way the camera is accessible by the operating system.

    I opened the camera of the Explorer and saw that the raw is not displayed correctly, using the card directly, I can see them without any problem

  • Windows Explorer does not show deleted files in the Recycle Bin, but under the console or to TotalCmd I can show the deleted files in C:\$RECYCLE. BIN (fixed!, see Edit 3)

    I think the bug has something to do with the partitions created with TrueCrypt.

    Hi, I have the same problem and never tried TrueCrypt. I suspect that the problem is elsewhere.

    I also tried the command "rd" and ccleaner. no luck... I'm always, too, waiting for a solution

    I think the bug has something to do with the partitions created with TrueCrypt.

    Indeed. Make the truecrypt as removable disk volume in options of fixed the problem :)

  • Hi windows mail will open only 1 email from each file, i.e. Inbox, junk e-mail, sent, all folders, emails are always in the folders when I check properties I checked Show all messages

    Hi windows mail open only 1 email from each file, i.e. Inbox, junk, sent mail, all of these files. summer's fine for 3 years. Show msgs is checked.i can see in the properties of the Inbox I have 70 messages they are there but only 1 will open I see msgs in orange webmail, they say no problem for this purpose. I can also see them in users email location.worried man help

    Assuming that it is an email account POP3, go to the message store and see if the messages are really there.  They must be located under the directories for the folder names under the main directory of local folders in the message store.  The store is located under the Users\ [username] \AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail\ directory and is hidden, so first go to control panel | Folder options | View and uncheck Hide extensions of known file types (so you can distinguish the eml files which are messages) and check the option to show the hidden files and folders.  Then you can see if the messages are in fact always there or missing.  See here for background: and also here for what may have caused it: as Bruce stated, if the messages are still on the server, you can set up your account again and then download them again.


  • Contents of the folders in OE 6 deleted

    My folders in OE 6 have been removed from A to H.  The rest are intact, ideas about what happened or how to recover?  Thanks in advance

    See see if real dbx files have been removed and also check the bak files in the message store and the garbage.  DBX files (who hold messages - see are hidden, so go in Control Panel | Folder options | View and uncheck Hide extensions of known file types and check the option to show the hidden files and folders.  Then you can see the files.

    If the files are there, then in OE go to file | Identities and establish a new identity.  Then you can manually import the dbx files in the new identity (see and use the file | Import | Messages to bring them from the old identity.
