hidden folders

  Mr "B" 22:14 04 Sep 2006

Please can anyone help, i'm totally stumped with this. I recently went into my internet Favourites folders and went into the properties of a folder within this and changed it to hidden and now its gone and i can't find it to change the setting back. i thought it was a setting which i'm familiar with "SHOW HIDDEN FOLDERS" but its not. I cant find out how to do it a really need too cause i have some very important web sites in here. Any help is very grateful, thanks.

locate your internet favourites folder on your computer, usually:
"C:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\Favorites"

and then you should be able to click on 'Tools' and 'Folder Options' from the explorer window, and then under 'view hidden folders' click 'show hidden files and folders'.

if it still doesnt show then you may have accidentally deleted the file?
