Re: "hide" photos-where arr they??

I am referring to the same menu you pulled up to do the hide...that same menu should have a "Show Hidden" selection on it. When you have navigated into the folder containing the files, bring up that menu and select "Show Hidden".

Re: "hide" photos-where arr they??

I know...follow these steps exactly...starting at your homescreen.

 

  • Media
  • BBKey
  • Explore
  • Navigate to the folder (don't select anything in the folder)
  • BBKey
  • Show Hidden

 

If you go from Media into Pictures and navigate that way, you will indeed not see Show Hidden. You have to bypass that and go directly to Explore. I did this on mine both ways and it works just like I'm explaining. If, following exactly, it does not work this way on yours, then there is something different about your OS that I do not understand.

Re: "hide" photos-where arr they??

Huh? Can you repost that last message? It seems to be a bit garbled and I can't figure out what you meant to say...

Re: "hide" photos-where arr they??

That's correct...they are simply shown for the moment and only via the Explore interface. Make sure you are still in Explore and not in Pictures. Now highlight (don't click) one that you want to permanently unhide. Now click the BBKey and select Properties. On that screen will be a Hidden checkbox...uncheck it and the hidden file will now be visible everywhere.
