Open Control Panel, double-click on folder options and it should be under the view tab.  You may have to change the control panel view to classic to be able to see all your options.

If you already have a window open that shows files, hit the Alt key. That makes your menu appear and now you can click Tools, Folder Options, View, Show Hidden (like we did in XP).
