Hidden picture folder?

I accidently clicked hidden on the properties of a folder I made to store pictures in within my phone. How do I find the hidden folder, as it no longer shows up? And make it un-hidden?

Re: Hidden picture folder?

You must be IN the folder in which the hidden folder is located and click the Menu key > Show All.

Re: Hidden picture folder?

I have tried that. When I go into view pictures, where the list of folders is, and click menu, there is no show all, if I try to create another folder with the same name I get a message that states "Directory already exists". I know how to do the show all for hidden Icons, just cannot find the hidden folder within my camera's stored pictures.

Re: Hidden picture folder?

Close your pictures folder with Menu > Close.

 

Go to your Media icon and press Menu > Explore and now navigate to the folder in which the "hidden" folder is located and press Menu > Show Hidden.

 

If the Show Hidden function is not present in the Menu, then you are not within the folder where the hidden folder is located.

 

When you do find the hidden folder, it will still be "ghosted" and with it highlighted, press Menu > Properties and UNclick the "hidden" property.

 

Good luck.

Re: Hidden picture folder?

I followed the steps above and it worked for some pictures. But for me, the entire Pictures folder itself is hidden and when I can't see it.

 

And when I follow the above steps I can see the box next to 'Hidden' but its grey and I can't click/unclick it. Any idea why that is?
