View Hidden Files Idly Sitting on your Computer

In Windows 7 it couldn't be easier with the Search tool.

1. Press Start (bottom left hand corner)
2. Type "Folder Options"
3. Select "Folder Options"
4. Click on the "View" panel
5. Locate "Hidden files and folders, or drives"
6. Check the circle next to Show hidden files, folders, and drives

7. The files revealed shouldn't be tampered with unless you are sure you know what you are doing. The system files work together and are best left alone, but it interesting to take a look to what really lies in your desktop, folders, and directories.
