Hidden Option Can't be Unchecked? Fix it Now!





If you look at the above picture, you'll notice the property of a hidden file. And carefully look at the attributes. The option Hidden is checked. And you will not be able to uncheck this. Because this option is disabled. 

In this situation you need to view the files by unchecking the protected operating system files from folder options. Which is very annoying. Because this option reveals many unnecessary files with your required files. 

Today I'm gonna share a cmd command by which you can easily unhide all files and folders from a particular drive. 
  1. Press Windows Logo Key + R.
  2. Type cmd and press Enter and you will see command prompt window.
  3. Now type this command: attrib -s -h K:\*.* /s /d
This will unhide all files and folders of the drive K. Remember K is name of the drive in which you wanna run the operations. If you wanna unhide the folders of any other drive ie. D, then type D instead of K.


To view all hidden files and folders of your PC, follow this instructions: 
Go to My Computer > View > Folder Options > Check Show Hidden Files and Folders > Uncheck Protected Operating System Files.

    3. You entered the drive letter incorrectly. First, copy the code in a notepad file. Then run Command Prompt. Now Go to the notepad file and change the drive letters with your drive. Now copy the code and paste this in Command Prompt Window. Right click and Paste.

    1. I can't understand you. What space? You mean a folder name like this - Folder Example?

      Space doesn't matter here. You just need to enter the drive path properly.

    1. You can't unhide system files like Recycler or Volume information by this code. In fact, they are hidden permanently.
