Turning Off "Show Files"

By jeff12321 ·
How does one turn off show files on system folders? i.e. The link you have to click on after you open Winnt, for example.

Turning Off "Show Files"

Thanks. Do you happen to notice when or how Windows normally reverts this permission? i.e. If you haven't disabled showfiles and you go into Winnt, up and out of it then try to go back in, you don't get the showfiles link but rather are permitted toenter/open the folder. Obviously, reboot resets showfiles, but do you know if you are not permitted before that? Such as a time limit?
