file explorer display options

The tutorial video I am watching has number of git related folders and files under gitdemo folder as shown on the left side of the below image.

My Windows 7 file explorer does not display any of the similar items under gitTest1 (fyi, those file exist when I check via command prompt).

Question: How can I change the settings in my file explorer so I could view subfolders like .git or files like config?

View, Options. The Folder dialog shows.

General tab. Navigation pane. Check Show All Folders. Check Automatically Expand to current folder.

Are the files you want hidden? If so...
Pick View Tab. Show hidden files, folders, and drives.

Glad it worked for you, eghtebas.

FYI... If you want those changes to stick every time you open Windows Explorer, under View tab, pick Apply to Folders
