How to view programdata in the expoler menu - windows 7

I am testing software and programdata is a hidden folder and I want to be able to copy training data.
Where in  Windows 7 can you change the option to view this folder.
Thanks in advance.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Flyfishtrout15--There are two settings affecting whether files and folders are hidden in Win 7.
Both are in Explorer|Organize| Folder and Search Options|View tab|
1)  Under Hidden Files and Folders check "Show hidden files, foldes and drives".
2)  Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".

I do not think you have to use 2) to see and open your ProgramData folder.

or any time at the root folder on command line, type "cd pro" and press the TAB key for a few times until you see "cd ProgramData" appears, press ENTER to enter the folder... :)
