How do I see hidden files? Tags: Hidden Files Windows XP Last response: February 7, 2009 9:16 PM in Windows XP Share Wulfmann February 7, 2009 8:34:00 PM I am not talking about program files. I need to get into some user hidden files like application data etc so I can reconfigure some things. I run CFS3 and when there is a conf problem sometimes one needs to delete the Appdata folder to reset it as well as dropping in files so I do not have to do a new complete confg of controls. I have it on my smaller PC but completely forgot how to set it up to see on my new build. Thanks Wulfmann More about : hidden files Talvenloppu February 7, 2009 8:57:25 PM Hi Go to Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Options > View.
