    Hidden Files and Folders Help

    Hi there. I have multiple hidden files on my computer. I am planning on downloading Windows 10 sometime soon. But I was wondering if I did, would I have to re-hide my currently hidden files and folders? (By the way I am currently running Windows 8.1) Any help would be appreciated.

    You will not know until you install. Backup the current install. Then when you upgrade, choose the option to not carry over any apps, files or software from 8.

    A lot of systems have had problems with the 10 upgrade, that something gets lost in the process and screws up the migration.

All hidden files turned Un-hidden
