Thanks for your reply. Yes, I'm using Windows 7, and what I'd like to do is to access my user folder from the taskbar in the form of a toolbar, so that all the subfolders and files will show up on pop-up menus and submenus when I click on the >> there. But for some reason the hidden folders are no longer hidden in my user folder when it is a toolbar on the taskbar (they continue to be hidden in the Explorer window). So I'm trying to find out whether there's a way to make those hidden folders hidden on the taskbar as well.
Thank you for your help,
