    "Show Hidden Files" In File Explorer Automatically Turns Off

    Fixed myself with a couple of registry editing.

    Hey, so I noticed recently I couldn't look at hidden files (and I could for a long time), so I checked the "Show Hidden Files" checkbox. It automatically turned off... Tried a reboot, no progress. I am an admin on my computer, so I can't think of why.

    I have attached a video of this happening.

    Any help is appreciated!
