Show Hidden files and Folders Problem in Windows XP.
In Windows XP we have a option to hide or show the hidden files. In the Windows explorer click Toolsà Folder option.
On the opened dialog box Select View Tab.
Under Hidden Files and Folders you have two option box
- Do not show Hidden files and Folders
- Show Hidden files and folders
In Windows XP sometimes if we set the Show Hidden Files and Folders option it automatically reset to Do not show Hidden files and Folders.
To fix this, we need to do some modification in the registry.
Type “regedit” in the Run Dialog box.
Search the following path.
On the Right side delete the KeyWord “CheckedValue” and add a new DWORD “CheckedValue” with the value “1”.
Close the Regedit and log off the system and log-in.
Now Change the option in the Toolsà Folder option.
