goto my computer

press Alt + T + O
press Control + Tab
check the "show hidden files and folders" option
uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)"
to also view the extensions for files
uncheck the "hide extensions for known file types" option

 THIS SHOULD BE ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
