Show all files

By: Arie Slob

By default, Windows 98 does not show hidden or system files. Also file types which are registered with the system (i.e. there is a program associated with the file type), are shown without extension when you view your files in Windows Explorer.

To see all files:

  1. Open Windows Explorer, and select Folder Options from the View Menu
  2. Click on the View tab, go to the Hidden Files header and choose Show all files, and press Apply

    Show all files

  3. To see your file extensions for all files, make sure that the check-box for Hide file extensions for known file types is unchecked

    Show all files
