All,
In Windows 2000, you can press the spacebar to quickly skip through the
nagging "Show the contents of this folder" barrier, when browsing to some
system-folders.

The spacebar however does no longer work in Windows XP.

Someone got a shortcut-KEY to proceed to the folder contents?

Thx

Unless this is a work computer or a computer used by someone else who
isn't computer-savvy, just change the viewing options to show you the
hidden files/folders. Do this from the Folder Options applet in Control
Panel.

I don't know of a shortcut key. Go to Folder optionsd (MY COmputer ->
Tools -> Folder Options), and look under the view tab. Select "Show
hidden files and folders", then click OK.
