How to access my Hide option

I've hidden a few folders in my documents. and now i cant figure out how to get them to be visible again. when i select a folder it gives me the hidden option after i right click and select properties. but when i have no folder to click, i just right click empty space in the folder; when i do that i no longer get the option to hide or unhide my folders. instead it says shown in pane (checked at the moment)

click the organise option at the top of explorer. now click 'folder and search options'. navigate to the 'view' tab and on the list select the 'show hidden files, folders and drives'.
If you want to hide your files frequently, you could use this tutorial: Show - Hide Hidden Files - Add to Context Menu
