Show hidden program or system files

Windows Me

Showing hidden files can come in handy—for example, say you've tried to delete everything from a floppy disk and the disk properties still indicate 100K of disk space is being used by hidden files.

To see hidden files, follow these steps in any folder window:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
  2. Click the View tab.
  3. Choose the Show hidden files and folders radio button.

Warning!   Don't be tempted to delete system files that Windows needs—when in doubt, leave them as you found them!
