Show hidden files option in Folder Options not working

Some disinfection routines performed by Bitdefender require a restart to complete.

Therefore, if the Hidden files settings are no longer available after a scan, you only need to perform a reboot, after which they will be available once again.

 

If, for some reason, the reboot does not fix your problem, follow the instructions presented below to show hidden files:

 

For Windows 10 users

• Click on the Windows icon in the lower left corner and type folder.

• Select Show hidden files and folders from the search results.

• In the Advanced settings column, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives, then click Apply.

 

For Windows 8.1 users

•  Point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then select Search.

NOTE: Alternatively, if you’re using a device with a touchscreen, swipe in from the right edge of the screen, then select Search.

• Type folder in the search box and select Folder Options from the search results.

• Select the View tab.

• Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives, then click Apply.

For Windows 7 users

• Click the Start button, then select Control Panel.

• Click on Appearance and Personalization.

• Select Folder Options, then select the View tab.

• Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives, then click Apply.
