How do I access App Data/Local/Temp folder?

There is a possible malware file in this folder that I want to delete but I can't access the folder. How do I do it?

Welcome to the forum,

This will show you how to get to that,

Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

We have malware experts to help as well if you need that.

Are you using a user account with administrator privileges?

I can access the folder without any issues.

If you can't see the folder, you need to go to Tools/Folder Options/View and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files." Also, under "Hidden files and folders" check "Show hidden files, folders, and drives."
