Hiding Files and Folders

Hidden files and folders are those whose file types are selected in the filter list.

The criterion for hiding or showing a file or folder is based on its data type. Use the Set Filter Options command to change which data types are shown and hidden. (See "To Specify Which Data Types Are Hidden" below.) The default hidden data types are DOT_FILE, DOT_FOLDER, and CURRENT_FOLDER.
