Where is the Folder Program Data ?

I'm new to WIN 7 and I keep seeing references to the Folder "Program Data" and/or"ProgData" in the C: drive .

I can't find this folder and I'm sure I've got all folders selected as being visible.

C:\ProgramData

▲ Put that into the address bar. Does it open a location?

My "Program Data" folder is in the C: directory. It is a hidden folder

I'm running 7 Professional 32 bit

Apologies ! Problem Solved !

Sorry folks , I had System Folders and Files hidden .

Have changed that now and have found the Program Data Folder.

Should really have checked that before posting - thanks to all who replied and apologies for wasting your time.
