Try to unhide all hidden files in your computer and check if the files you're looking will show, how?

1. Open My Computer
2. Click tools and choose Folder Options
3. Click View then scroll down and Tick the circle for Show hidden files, folders and drives.
4. Click Apply and then OK

All of the hidden files will be shown on your computer you just have to remeber where exactly you saved that files coz tht where it will show.

If you cant remember where you saved it then you can do a search.

1. Click your start button
2. If your using windows 7 you can type the filename of that file on the long box that says search for programs and files.

I cant find my hidden apps on my lg motion 4g


If I'm not wrong most of the hidden are shown in the cell phone. If your cell phone support USB than try yourself from your system (PC) there Show your hidden files.(suppose if you are using windows 7 than try this step if you don't show your hidden file or folder(s) Click on Organize>Folder and search options>In folder options> Click on view>show hidden files, folders, and drives)
In case if you can't do it by yourself than please refer to the nearest mobile service centre in case if your OS(Operating System) has been corrupted.

On our old computer i can see my folders(hidden folders), but in our new computer i cant see it


Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files. This can be fixed and data would be available to you. However, there are number of steps involved.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select 'SHOW HIDDEN FILES & FOLDERS' and uncheck/ Deselect 'HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM FILES'.

It would show the hidden files/ folders, if the system not infected Otherwise, from the clean/ virus free system you can see your data and copy all the required files/data. Select the required files and right-click and change the properties of the file by un-checking the hidden attribute. Please note that you can not change the properties (hidden attribute of the files) if the files are marked as system files. To change the attribute of such folders you can download and use iReset. Just select the file or folder and its just as easy to drag and drop to reset all attributes and make the files visible again.(Note that you can reset one folder or file at a time)

Also, make sure that you have a good antivirus installed and its updated. Scan your system and clean it.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!
