It is often helpful to be able to access your computer's hidden folders, for example if you need to access the Temp folder, or template and support files for AutoCAD or BricsCAD.
Follow the steps below to enable the hidden folders and files (Windows 10).

1. Open a File Explorer window.
2. Go to File|Change folder and search options.
3. Go to the "View" tab.
4. Enable the option "Show hidden files, folders, and drives".
