Win 8: How to enable "hidden files"

This is related to Windows 8. I am in the “Desktop Mode”. I double- click the icon of “Folder” at the bottom tray; and I see the followings:

I.      Favorites
1)      Desktop
2)      Download
3)      Recent Places

II.      Libraries
1)      Documents
2)      Music
3)      Pictures
4)      Videos

III.      Computer
IV.      Network

I name this location as “HERE”


My Question: How to ENABLE the Hidden files and File Extension from “HERE”? (It seems it is different with Win 7)

Thank you

when you have the file manager open press the alt key on your keyboard, and a new menu should appear at the top, click tools > Folder Options   then the view options tab ang check the box for "show hidden files folders and drives" and uncheck "hide extensions for known file types"
