Hi guys,

On my Start Menu under Programs I right-clicked a folder in there and
selected Hidden (this folder only), I did this from the Start Menu itself (I
had 'enable drag and dropping set') and now I can't restore it. I tried
using Explorer to find the folder I hid and it's there, its properties don't
even have the Hidden box checked. How do I get it to show up again ?

I'm using XP Pro (SP2).

Take care.

It sounds as though you've hidden the shortcut to the folder, not the actual
folder. To unhide the shortcut, you'll need to enable the "Show hidden
files and folders" and change the setting on the shortcut.

To this from "My Computer". Select Tools | Folder Options... from the main
menu then go to the "View" tab. Under "Advanced Options", select "Show
hidden files and folders".

If you want to hide the folder, you'll need to set the hide option on the
folder, not the shortcut.
