Re: how to enable hidden files in Windows 10

Hi Brian,


It has same effect as going into folder options and view tab. If you set it using shortcut keys and then go into the options the other way you will find it set in there and if you set or unset in folder option you would find the ribbon option checked or unckecked accordingly.

Open file explorer by holding down the Windows key and pressing the E key. Then hold down the ALT key and press the V key and finally press the H key twice. This acts as a toggle and will turn it on if it is off and off if it is on.

Just curious, does doing it this way make the change apply globally to all files and folders or just to the one that you're viewing at the time?  I see all the controls you've mentioned, but have not used this technique, always going the File Options dialog in Control Panel instead.
