I cant see radio button "show all hidden files and folders"


Go to Start select programs and then accessories and then click to open "windows explorer". If you can't find it there search for explorer.exe. Click on the program and open it. Select "tools" on the task bar and "Folder options" in the pull down drawer. Select "view". It should be in front of you under the the "Hidden files and folders" folder. You can apply it to the current directory Windows Explorer is in or all folders in the drive by punching the button marked as such there.
