Showing hidden files using command prompt.

I can show hidden files using the 'Tools, Folder Options, View' path, but I was just wondering if anyone knows of a way to do this with a single action e.g. with the command prompt. My web searches only turn up ways to change the attributes of individual files/folders. It's not really a problem, I'm just looking for a shortcut :)

Thanks

Are you familiar with Windows 7 Godmode? This article explains how to enable this - this sits on your desktop and provides a wealth of shortcuts.

Forgot to say that you can then create individual shortcuts on your desktop.
