    Explorer looses "show hidden files" setting


    It seems that each time I restart Windows it forgets that I have set the "Show hidden files" option in the explorer settings.

    Is this just a stupid bug that I have to live with (thanks, Microsoft) or is there a solution to it?

    Some files might be corrupted, performing a maintenance could help. Run CMD as admin, copy/paste:

    chkdsk /scan
    fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:
    Dism /online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    sfc /scannow
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    winmgmt /salvagerepository
    cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

    If it was bug it would be same everywhere, I don't have that "Bug".
