How to Display Hidden Files in Windows 8

Monday, November 25th, 2013

The process for displaying hidden files in Windows 8 is basically the same as it was in Windows 7 … It’s just a bit harder to find the appropriate menu now.

Select files and folders of the Windows 8 operating system are hidden by default so that users of the system can’t see them in File Explorer and most other programs that they run on the system.
