    any way to make hidden files easy accesible without going to folder options,view???


    a button on the toolbars or maybe a right click option?

    maybe a tweak to achieve that?

    It's a registry value, so yes, you could write a .reg file to change the value and have an icon for it on your desktop. One for each, to set and unset.

    Reg file to show hidden files in Explorer

    ;.............................
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
    "Hidden"=dword:00000001
    "SuperHidden"=dword:00000001
    "WebViewBarricade"=dword:00000001
    "ShowSuperHidden"=dword:00000001

    ;.......................................


    Reg file to not show hidden and system files

    ;.............................
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
    "Hidden"=dword:00000000
    "SuperHidden"=dword:00000000
    "WebViewBarricade"=dword:00000000
    "ShowSuperHidden"=dword:00000000

    ;.......................................

    Save this two files somewhere. Next create two new shortcuts on you desktop with the commands

    regedit /s "C:\Some folder\hide.reg"
    regedit /s "C:\Some folder\unhide.reg"
    (adjust path and filenames)
    This way you avoid the confirmation windows when merging the files.
