How to unhide the USER folder in Windows 10

I want to import my favorites from Internet Explorer but when I check the file path it's under the hidden folder, and my user account is hidden as well. How can I fix it?

Hello,
I'm Perso, I'm an Independent expert. I will help you in this case today.

Getting to the folder where the files of a specific user are hosted is simple, you must go to C:> User or Users> Double click on the corresponding user's folder. However, there are three reasons why you can not see any folder with the username you use.

1. The folder is hidden: To make sure that this prevents the display of your user folder, go to the Users or Users folder, click on View, click on Options, then click on View, then check the box Show files, folders and hidden units, finally click on OK and confirm that if you can see the folder corresponding to your user account.

2. Different folder name: This happens when you change the name of your user account but the corresponding user's folder does not change. If you visualize the other folders of the users of your team and you see another that you do not know or recognize with the name of a previous user, that is probably the folder of your user account.

3. The folder of a user account has been moved: This occurs when a user with administrator rights has moved the folder location, for this reason it can not be displayed in the Users or User folder.


If you have any other questions, feel free to write again. Thank you!

I sincerely hope I have been useful.

Sincerely,
Perso Langie
I was able to check the folder settings but I cannot import those favorites since the folder under on my user account is hidden and not visible in importing.

Hi Issa

What folder is hidden, is your whole user account folder hidden, and if so what is the exact path to that folder?

If it is just a sub folder of your user folder that is hidden, for example AppData, then on the View ribbon of File Explorer, temporarily turn on 'Hidden Items . . .

It's the Whole User account folder. The file path is C:\User\UP\favoites and all other content.

The UP itself is hidden.

Hi Issa_1507

Click your Start Button, then just type cmd

From the resulting list, right click Command Prompt and choose 'Run as Administrator

Paste this command into Command Prompt and hit Enter

attrib +r -s -h C:\User\UP /S /D

When that completes, restart (not shut down) your PC


If that does not work, boot into safe Mode and tun that from there . . .
