enable Folder option if it is not visible

This was a secret Trick on how to enable Folder option if it is not visible. Now it is no more a secret. But who cares. It still remains a 'trick'!!

Often due to virus attack etc, users face a common problem on Windows Systems. Sometimes the "show hidden files and folders" option is not enabled. Even if enabled, you can not view the hidden folders.

In such a case, open RUN, type regedit to open Registry editor. Search for “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Explorer\Advanced”. In the pane on the right side modify the value of “Hidden” to 1 and refresh My Computer window. You shall be be able to see hidden files now.
