No matter how you prefer to act, you have to get to the "Explorer", and you can do it within your means:
- Start menu;
- Applications "Search".
In the “Explorer” application window, move the mouse cursor to the horizontal menu, namely to the “View” item and click on it with the left mouse button → now move the mouse cursor to “Parameters” and perform the same click with the left mouse button → a little more move the mouse cursor to “Change folder and search parameters” and do the same, click on it with the left mouse button.
The correctness of all your actions can be visualized by the appearance of the “Folder options” window, where you need to do a few more clicks with the mouse: move the mouse cursor over “View” and left-click with the mouse → go down to the bottom of the open window and tick the box next to “Show hidden files, folders and drives ”→ hover the mouse over the“ Ok ”button and click on it with the left mouse button, which authorizes saving all your previously performed actions.
All the above procedure will allow you to simultaneously perform the "hide" / "open" of all: folders, files and hard drives. On the one hand, this is very convenient, since it is not necessary to interact with each element of the system separately, but on the other hand, this is not always practical, especially when it is necessary to make just one element of the system visually displayed, and hide all others. In such a situation, you will need to do some more actions to bring the OS to the visual appearance that you really need.
Initially, you make visible all the elements that the system automatically hides, and then do the following: hover the mouse over the previously hidden OS element and right-click on it → move to the context menu to “Properties” → in the new window, by clicking with the left mouse button on the “mark” near the “Hidden” item, make this element visible always → apply changes using the “Apply” button.
Thus, hidden elements in Windows 10 can be individually configured and this will allow the PC user to manipulate these system elements in the way that suits him. In addition, using the method described above, you can always hide folders created with your own hand with files.
We hope that this article on configuring Windows 10 will be useful to you and you will use it more than once, since this is the “standard” method of hiding elements in the OS that you can use in any area: work, accounting and entertainment.
