thats the ability of the added context menu. however is it possible to have some of these functions on a separate menu? If possible I'd like to see show hidden files separate from show protected operating system files.. wondering if thats possible

Ok M18XR2. The tutorial has been updated to be able to have one or both options available now.

To update, remove the current context menu, and use the new downloads in the tutorial.

I hope this isn't asking too much , but would you be a dear and add the final combination: context menu to toggle only "protected operating system files"? Please?

Hello Soyabeaner,

I wish I could, but in order for protected OS files to show, the Show hidden files, folders, and drives option must be turned on (checked) as well.

For some reason, I keep getting the shield icon on the Show/Hide Hidden Files but not on the Show/Hide All Hidden Files. Attached is a picture of my context menu.
