Show hidden files in only specific folders

Since I am working ROM's for HTC Devices i oftenly need edit/see hiden files and also i need to see extnesions.
Problem is that i hate that in other folders/hard drives.

So can i somehow set those settings for only a specific folders, so that in other folders i dont see them
-show hidden files files and folders
-show extensions for known file types
-hide protected operating system files

Just go to folder options then "view", you can check and uncheck what you want to see.

Subscribed...interested as well. It'd probably take a bit of SW to do it, as I don't think Microsoft has a setup for it...

Off topic but, which HTC's are you working on?

Sorry Benko, but it's a all or none type of setting in Vista and Windows 7. You will have to toggle it on and off.
