Windows 7: I lost my limited user account folder icon in Users folder.

I lost my limited user account folder icon in Users folder.

I clicked on the Hidden box of Properties for a couple of my folders.

I lost my limited user account folder in the Users folder. How do I get it back?

Thanks,
theAdmiral

You mean you hide it? If that what happened, just change the folder view setting to show up the hidden folders.
Refer here:
Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

If that isn't what happened, then elaborate the situation much more.

Can't Access "Default User" folder in Users Folder
No matter what I do, and how much I edit the security settings on that folder (not that it lets me even do that) I can't access this folder for some reason? What's the deal? Thanks. This is on Windows 7. I have two admin accounts. I can't access it from either account.
