    *Lock Please* Lost Folder

    I was messing around with my folders on my computer
    and I was trying to do that "invisible folder" thing that
    you can do on Mac computers. (by the way, I have Vista)

    I clicked a check box that said "Hide Folder"
    After applying the change, the icon for my
    folder became transparent.

    That wasn't what I wanted, so I moved the folder back
    into another folder, and It disappeared. I looked through
    the folder that i put it into, and searched by title, but I
    couldn't find my lost folder: if i search for any of the documents;
    I can find them, but not open their "file location"


    I need to get that folder back, so if anyone knows how to find it or get
    it out of wherever it is, please help



    I'm not a pervert, and its not a "collection"
    the folder has some MP3s that itunes won't
    accept, so I need them, or I won't have the
    songs on my ipod :O

    If you can remember the files that were in it, just search them up and make a duplicate folder manually..

    Organize >> Folder and Search Options >> View

    Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked, and you should be able to see the folder.

    E: 1234 posts, haha, that's great.

    Open up a folder, and at the top left, there should be a little button that says "Organize".
