    Accessing Folders in Explorer win 10


    Here is something strange. I have the 64bit Win 10 upgrade installed and I can't look
    inside the windows temp folder, is there a way I can do this? This is rather weird as with
    all the other OS's I have use this has not been a problem.
    It is one of the few things I find in Win 10 that bug me.

    Press the windows + r key and type %temp% or temp in the run popup that comes up after pressing those keys.

    Thanks for the reply but that only opens the user temp folder, I was hoping to open the Windows\Temp folder.

    Click on the temp folder when the dialog pops up click continue then "OK" on the UAC prompt that comes up. You now enter the temp folder.

    I just did it 5 seconds ago. Worked like a treat.

    Oh well, I have disabled UAC and I just can't gain access so, bad luck I guess? Thanks for trying.

    Try clicking on the View tab then check Hidden Items on the right.

    Could also try enabling UAC but leave the slider set all the way to the bottom. This is what I'm doing and seems to work well over all.
