Last evening I blogged “How to create Windows key shortcuts in Vista & 7” which helps you create new Windows key shortcuts in XP, Vista and Windows 7.Now, I have another tool which will surely delight all keyboard freaks once again.
We often use Windows Hide files and folders feature to hide or show files and folders. But, it’s a long procedure as we need to open Tools > Folder Options > View and finally, Show/hide hidden files option. Isn’t it a good idea to create a shortcut key to access this nifty feature?
Well creating a shortcut to access Show/hidden files is not easy. Instead, I use a small tool called Toggle Hidden File that allows you access show/hidden files with a simple keyboard shortcut.
Toggle Hidden File is small script that adds Windows explorer the ability to show/hide hidden files with a keyboard shortcut. The program is very small and easy to install as well. Download and extract the file from below source and then extract it to “C” (to keep it safe) drive and run the ToggleHiddefiles.exe once.
Once you add the script by running the executable file, you can use [Windows] + [H] key to show/hide hidden files or folders in Windows. This cool application works great on XP, Vista, Windows 7 and later operating systems.
