    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)%"
