    Program files x86 hidden

    Hi, i just updated my Windows 10 Pro x64 with Anniversary update and now i have Program Files x86 as hidden folder.
    Why? Programs are working fine, but can i somehow make it visible as before?

    Thanks for reply.

    Hello LamaObecna, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You can run the command below in an elevated command prompt to unhide that folder.

    attrib -h -s "%ProgramFiles(x86)%"
