pls help

Hello Pranavjindal, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I have updated the tutorial to have two options for the Show/Hide Hidden Files context menu item. One that will play sound, and one that will not play sound when used to help those that have Windows Media Player turned off in Windows Features.

Hi Shawn ,

That looks familiar.

I have been using mine for years without any issues.

I never needed the LUAShield bit.

shawn, do you really need the last two lines of the no-sound script?

Code:
WScript.sleep 1000
command2.Run "taskkill /f /im wmplayer.exe", 0

Hello Simon,

Yeah, I just added the shield icon to help add a bit of caution to it since it does also unhide the protected operating system files as well.
