Unhide hidden folder

I "accidentally" hid a folder by ticking the "Hidden" box in the properties/attributes. This hid the folder completely, how can I restore it?

In Windows Explorer go to Tools > Folder options and view. Click in "Show hidden files and folders" OK it

Navigate to the file you want, go to its properties and remeove the tick from the 'hidden' box.

bremner Thanks for reply, but I should have said that I am using Win 7 OS and can't see Tools in the tool bar, it only shows Organize,Include in library,Share with,Burn and New folder.
More help please?

I don't use Win7 yet - but hopefully this will guide you to the folder options

Sea Urchin Thanks for info, it works fine. But I have since discovered that going into Windows Explorer>Organize>Folder search options does the same. Thanks everyone for quick replies. I'll tick this one as resolved.
