View Hidden Files and Folders in Ubuntu File Browser


The Ubuntu file browser does not show hidden files or folders by default, only the files that your user has access to.
Here’s what file browser looks like when browsing the root file system normally:
filebrowser.png
As you can see, all of the hidden/system folders are not shown. If you hit Ctrl+H at this screen, you will immediately see all the hidden files:
filebrowserh.png
Fairly useful shortcut key. If you would just prefer to make this be the default setting when using file browser, go to the Edit menu and select Preferences:
filehiddenpref.png
Check the “Show hidden and backup files” checkbox, and you should now see the hidden files all of the time.

Step 1. Open Windows Explorer (eg. My Computer) and click on the Tools Menu as shown in below.

Some times a newly installed version of iTunes for Windows will not open. Even though it may still shows as running in the Windows Task Manager(Ctrl+Alt+Delete-click Task Manager).

3. Click the View tab.
4. In the "Advanced settings" pane under "Hidden files and folders" make sure that the "Show hidden files and folders" option is selected. And Click OK.

Desktop hijacked at the time of starting


Do this in order...its worked for others that had similar messages on Startup...as long as your operating system is legit. Any time you deal with this type of work on the computer...know what your doing...altering your registry can have dire effects.

1. C:WindowsDownloaded Program Files
  • Within that folder, remove any files or folders associated with .WGA
2. Safe Mode
  • Reboot your computer and as soon as Windows logs off, start repeatedly tapping the F8 Key on your keyboard.
  • As soon as you see the Windows Advanced Startup options select Safe Mode within Safe Mode get yourself into these folders…
  • C:WindowsSystem32 (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
  • C:WindowsSystem32dllcache (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
    Note: Dllcache is a hidden folder, to view hidden folders do the following, go to Start, Control Panel, Folder Options,
    Select the view Tab and under the Hidden Files option, select Show hidden files and folders
3. Safe Mode Registry
  • Click on Start, Run and within the open dialog box type regedit and click OK.
  • Within the Registry Editor navigate your self to
    HKEY_Local_MachineSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsNTCurrentVersionWinlogonNotifyWGALOGON
  • Right Click and Export the WGALOGON Folder (this should be saved onto your machine for backup purposes)
  • After Exporting the folder, DELETE the WGALOGON folder
  • After deleting close all applications and Restart your machine back to Normal Mode
4. www.microsoft.com/genuine
  • Get into the site above and manually re-validate your copy of Windows.
  • After being prompt of a successful validation, Restart your Machine

My Windows Explorer does not show extentions


By default, file extensions for known file types are hidden in Windows XP. However, you can change this setting so that file extensions are shown for files in a certain folder or for all files on your hard disk.
To show file extensions, first open any folder on your hard drive, such as "My Computer" or "My Documents." Then select "Folder Options..." from the Tools menu as shown below.
545a526.gif When the Folder Options window opens, click the View tab. This will show the file and folder view settings.
95b32b0.gif One of the options under Advanced settings is "Hide extensions for known file types." If this option is checked, uncheck the checkbox and click Apply or OK. This setting is system wide, so unchecking this box will make file extensions appear in all folders.
If you decide to hide file extensions at a later time, you can check the box again and click OK to revert back to the previous settings.
