    No, they are not there either

    I've looked there too. They aren't there either.
    It doesn't have them but I still get the 'override' message. I think that means they are somewhere...or hidden.
    Any other suggestions?
    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks, but that didn't do it.

    The default is already set to favorites. It's set where it's supposed to be.
    Where in the hell could they have gone?
    I'm so confused.
    I do appreciate you trying to help me, but I guess they're lost. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know.
    This whole virus thing is my fault anyway.
    Thanks again. I'm learning a lot as I go along.

    Hey there

    Just wondering if anyone can help me. After creating a new user account, I found I couldn't view the Documents, Pictures, Videos and Music folders in the new User's Libraries. I've un-hidden my hidden folders, and now I can see them, but they come up paler than the other folders do, and I want them to be normal files so I can hide the originally--hidden folders so I don't accidentally delete something!

    Please don't answer with loads of tech-y words, I do understyand computers basically, but I don't know all of these computer words!

    Hell Teen-in-trouble, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    A faded folder or file indicates that the file or folder is set to be hidden. Unhiding hidden files using this tutorial only lets you see the hidden files/folders as faded files/folders, but does not actually unset them as hidden files/folders.

    Using the commands at the link below should set the library folders to be unhidden them so that they will no long be faded (hidden) anymore.

    Hope this helps,

    Could you post a screenshot of these hidden files and folders showing their full path in the address bar to see if something may stand out?

    Yes But

    Is there a way to change the view settings for a single folder? At least once a week I want to find something in AppData/... and have to change the setting back and forth. This is idiotic.
