"These files are hidden."

When one opens C:\Windows for the first time the usual message is displayed:

"These files are hidden...you should not modify it's contents."

My question is that once I have clicked "Show the contents of this folder" how can I reset it so that the message is displayed once again?

Is it a registry setting?

So obvious; I never really look at the Task Panes.

Couldn't find anything in Folder Options.
