Show Hidden Files and Folders in Vista and Windows 7

I was just asked from a frustrated ex-XP user, "how do you show hidden files in Windows 7? Why did they change it from the way that it worked since everyone knows how to do it?"

While I can't answer the second question, who knows what goes on in the mind of a Windows programmer, but to show hidden files and folders is the same in both Vista and Windows 7.

- Microsoft logo (generally, bottom-left-hand corner)

- 'Control Panel'

- 'Appearance and Personalization'

- Under 'Folder Options' click 'Show hidden files and folders'
