Windows 7: Hidden Attribute checkbox on file properties greyed out

Hidden Attribute checkbox on file properties greyed out

I want to make a bunch of folder.jpg files so they are no longer hidden. But when I check the file properties, the hidden attribute checkbox is greyed out, so I can't untick it.

Name:  hidden.png
Views: 30
Size:  8.5 KB

Any ideas on how I can change the hidden attribute of these files?

Thanks

Dave

Hello Dave,

You might see if you may be able to do so using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below with the command prompt.

File and Folder - Hide or Unhide

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Cheers for that!

First time I tried it I got the message:
Code:
Not resetting system file - E:\My Music\Zapp & Roger\Folder.jpg
for every file, so I tried
Code:
attrib -S -H "E:\My Music\*folder.jpg" /S
and that worked a treat.

Thanks!
