Windows folder missing

Hey guys i don't know when this happened but i found myself one day looking for windows/temp and the windows folder was missing in C . I got to temp by searching for it but how can i make windows folder reappear?
I also have "view hidden folders" set on so there should be no issue normally.

The actual location of the temp folder is C:\users\username\Appdata\local\temp, where username is your user account name. Here's an easy way to get to the Temp folder. Click the Start orb, then type "%tmp%" without quotes in the Run Box.

substitute UserName above with your account name

Hope this helps

when you tick show hidden files, did you tick also "show operating system files"?

You can also use the start menu "Search programs and files" box.

No, guys, the problem was how to make windows folder show up in C , not how to get to something in it.
Also there's no 'show operating system files' option :-/ .

So you don't get the "Windows" in C: like in the snip below?
