How do you take off the option to show hidden files in Server core 2008 R2.

In Server 2008 R2 you can Organize > Folders and Search Options >
Show hidden Files, folders and drives

I want to see all hidden files/folders on server core 2008

thanks

Honestly, I haven't done much with server core, but my understanding is that there is NO explorer and no easy access to control panel - so the answers provided thus far are inapplicable.

For viewing from the command line, you'd probably have to make a batch file to replace the function of dir.  I would probably call it ls.cmd (so as to be similar to *nix).

the batch file would probably be something like:
@ECHO OFF
DIR
ECHO Hidden files:
DIR /AH

It's not perfect, but it would show you the hidden files.

Then change to "%allusersprofile%" -

cd %allusersprofile%

and you can view hidden files with dir /ah

(NOTE: when you need something specific, best to ask a specific question).
