    I set up so many computers that if I manually set each one to Show Hidden Files, I wouldn't live long enough to ever get the job done, but then that's only one of very many settings I do during a PC setup.

    So like with most of the settings I perform on a new PC, I use a script or batch file to perform most of the settings.

    The VB Script to "Show all files" looks like this:

    ' Script to toggle Windows Explorer display of hidden files,
    ' super-hidden files, and file name extensions

    Option Explicit
    Dim dblHiddenData, strHiddenKey, strSuperHiddenKey, strFileExtKey
    Dim strKey, WshShell
    On Error Resume Next

    strKey = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced"
    strHiddenKey = strKey & "\Hidden"
    strSuperHiddenKey = strKey & "\ShowSuperHidden"
    strFileExtKey = strKey & "\HideFileExt"

    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    dblHiddenData = WshShell.RegRead(strHiddenKey)

    If dblHiddenData = 2 Then
    WshShell.RegWrite strHiddenKey, 1, "REG_DWORD"

    WshShell.RegWrite strSuperHiddenKey, 1, "REG_DWORD"
    WshShell.RegWrite strFileExtKey, 0, "REG_DWORD"
    WScript.Echo "Windows Explorer will show hidden files and file " & _
    "name extensions. You might need to change to another folder " & _
    "or press F5 to refresh the view for the change to take effect."

    WshShell.RegWrite strHiddenKey, 2, "REG_DWORD"
    WshShell.RegWrite strSuperHiddenKey, 0, "REG_DWORD"
    WshShell.RegWrite strFileExtKey, 1, "REG_DWORD"
    WScript.Echo "Windows Explorer will not show hidden files or file " & _
    "name extensions. (These are the default settings.) You might " & _
    "need to change to another folder or press F5 to refresh the " & _
    "view for the change to take effect."

    End If

    Copy and paste the blue lines into a Notepad document and save as "Toggle Hidden Files.vbs"
    Then just run the script, to turn hidden files on or off.
