I had a virus on the computer, cause all my files suddenly became hidden files. So I backed up my data, reloaded my operating system, and reloaded the files from the backup.
But they still appear as hidden, how do I unhide all of those files. I went to the folders option and checked the 'show hidden files and folders' so that the files reappeared, but they still appear as hidden (the icons are faded)The files are located in various folders, the folders themselves are not hidden just the files in them.
I know I can go to each folder, select all the files and then right click on any of the files, go to properties and uncheck hidden. But that takes way too long, is there a way to unhide all the files in all the folders quickly?
