    However, the folder is hidden by default…doesn’t show the public desktop folder by default… must show the hidden files and folders.

  2. Ryan says:

    You don’t need to show hidden files/folders — you can just type the path in a Run prompt or the address bar of Windows Explorer, and it will take you to the hidden folder.
