Hi there :)

I am using Windows XP - Home edition and have 'hidden' some files that I don't want anyone else to see.

Only trouble is I can't see them either!

How do I 'unhide' (is there such a word??) them so I can view and work on them?

Also is there another way of putting a password on a folder so only I can get into the folder and view the files??

Thanks.

under folder optoins have you got "show hidden files/foldes" on ??

also untick "hide file extentions of known file types".
