    I recently chose to hide a folder on my desktop, and now am unable to find the files in the folder. I tried going to "file explorer" and clicked "view" and marked the box "hidden items" but still nothing appeared. I tried right clicking the folder itself and clicked "properties" and unclicked the "hidden" option, and still can't see the files in the folder. I know the files are not deleted, but I have no clue why they aren't appearing in the folder even when I click "show hidden files, folders and drives". Nothing is working and I fear everything has been lost for some reason.
