Windows 7: Use elevated command mode within Win 7

Use elevated command mode within Win 7

This is a question on file and folder location.

The program being used creates a file in a directory.

From my use of Win 7 I can only navigate to the file in elevated command mode in the DOS box.

Is there a way to permanently reveal all folders to the Win 7 interface?

Part of the directory tree reads as follows:

c:\users\all users\my directory\another directory\ .file name

In Win 7, all users and the rest cannot be retrieved with search.

The goal is to make a shortcut to the .file name directory

Welcome.

The folder "All Users" is a hidden protected operating system file/folder.

See this tutorial to unhide.

Actually, the folder you want is C:/users/public and/or C:/ProgramData. The all users folder is just a Junction point for old software.

I'm sure I looked at these two elements but will look again.

There is only one user/administrator account on my home machine. I don't know if a logout/login is necessary (?)

Worst case is I have to find the file manually.

Thanks for answering.
