Do you have vista, let me show something new,
I was going to send my CV to someone, My CV in hidden folder (I do not know why I did that :D) So, I wanted to show it, I went to expolrer main menu nothing looks like Windows XP explorer.
So, F1 is the savior, Vista's F1 more than that :D, I pressed F1, search dailog appeared in search textbox I wrote "show hidden files" I selected the first result, then I found two options Do it automatically and show me step-by-step...
I selected Do it automatically... then it made it for me and said The task is complete
Very nice, Vista team (Y)
