What do you mean by "hidden"? I guess you could open "My Computer", click the "Tools" menu, click "Folder Options...", click the "View" tab, click "Show hidden files and folders", and click "OK"

Only if this is what they need.  Wasn't completely sure what they meant by the question myself.  We'll see.

If you mean none of them are showing up, try Right clicking an empty part of the desktop, going to 'Arrange Icons By' and making sure that the "Show Desktop Icons" has a check next to it.
