Windows 7: Huh? files invisible--kind of!

Huh? files invisible--kind of!

I was organizing File folders on my D drive that contain Sketchup Components. I had about 25 .skp files that I needed to sort into folders. I had selected them all and slipped with my mouse and they all disappeared. I thought I had in inadvertently dragged them into another folder. However, a search shows them to be where they were originally. This is the odd part. If I navigate to Computer>D: Data>Components, all the folders show but these files do not. If I do a search for one of the files, then chose "copy path to clipboard", and then paste the path in explorer, it goes to the same directory but all the files are listed. Huh? I'm sure I some switched off something.

Look at attached images, both paths are the same and both say 80 items. However, one does not display the .skp files at the bottom. What did I do?

clicking the arrow left to Google Sketchup Model, hides and unhides files under that section. Maybe that is your problem. If it is not, sorry.

Duh. Clicked on the Google Sketchup Model (19) and it expanded to show the files. I was unaware the similar files in a folder could be grouped like that.

Background: The Win7 StickyNote application has crappy fonts, but on the web, I found a suggestion to use NotePad++ to edit a config file of some sort, (an .mui file. It was suggested that Notepad might corrupt the file, because it has binary components, but NP++ should handle it.) The file is:...
