hidden files and folders

Marisane Moruthanyana

Evening guys


I hope you are all well from wherever you are.


I am stuck and confused.


I use nvda as my screen reader.


I copied files and folders from a sd card (8 gb)


I am sure that they are there, because I can play them with vlc or winamp by pressing the application key and choose the application by which I want them to play.


However, when I open the folder in which I expect them  to be located, I cannot find them.


I only find them by searching for them with windows.


What is happening?


Why the folder empty though files / folders are seemingly there?


How to activate the windows explorer for me to see the files / folders the normal way?


Your help is appreciated in advance.
