    Show/don't show hidden files action in folder options have got interchanged.

    Hello, In 'folder options' the action of 'show' and 'don't show' hidden files have got interchanged. So, when I select 'don't show' hidden files are shown, and vice versa. How to get this back to normal? Thanks! Royce. Sent from my GT-I9103 using Tapatalk 2
