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.

Go to Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Options > View. Check: "Display the contents of system folders" and under Hidden Files and Folders change the option to "Show hidden files and folders"

Hope that helps

Microsoft Explorer ??

On mine that is control panel but that led me to where I needed to be and gave me the solution.
