This is a very simple tutorial that will show you the methods to show or hide hidden files in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
Let us begin.

1. Access your Control Panel
Hint: Press Win + X key to open the Windows Tool Menu
2. Click Control Panel from the menu
3. Click Appearance and Personalization
4. Click Folder Options
5. Tick the check box.
Hint: Here, you can either choose to “Show Hidden Files” or “Hide Hidden Files”
Save your options and what ever options you selected should automatically apply on your system.
