Remove Hidden Attribute From Folder

Tue Jun 14, 2016 3:08 pm

I know this is nothing new, but I just discovered a really simple way to remove the hidden attribute from any folder.

Just navigate to where the folder is contained (E.G. D:\ or D:\folder1\) in CMD prompt.

Then type in

Code: Select all

attrib -H -S "folder name" /S /D


And the hidden attribute is instantly removed.

Remove Hidden Attribute From Folder

Sometimes that doesn't work....
I had a problem some time ago, where I need to change attributes of the JAVA folder to allow the installation of a certificate of a client.
And no way I could change it. The only way was to first go to the security/ownership of the folder, take ownership of it (and yes, I was the admin), and after that in there allow the user and admin to write, read, etc on it...

Yes, I do believe you need to have full control on the folder to do it.
