By default Windows Explorer, many versions hides info

Like file extensions, some %appdata% and hidden files.

Sometimes, you need to get to %appdata% to find a setting for a program or a template that you want to adfjust directly.

And with malware happy to put things here and there, you just want to see and know where weird files have secreted themselves.

This is a patient and comprehensive article.
