My computer is showing all my folders and files... even the ones that are Temporary and not suppose to be visible. How do I change this so those unused forlders/files aren't showing?

Thanks!

Open Windows Explorer.

If you cannot see the File / Edit/ View / Tools menu, press Alt. (Just Alt - not Alt and something). These menus will then appear

Go to Tools - Folder Options - View.

Select "Hidden files and folders - Don't show hidden files, folders and drives".

And tick "Hide protected operating system files".
