I am afraid not. The issue is not with my icons. Let me go into detail of what really happened.
I had some pictures in my Blackberry Picture Folder i.e. Menu/Media/Pictures. I moved these pictures into a new folder i.e. /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures/New Folder/Camera Pic1.jpg.
Then I hid the folder i.e. /Media Card/BlackBerry/pictures/New Folder.
Now problem is that I cannot simply locate that folder from anywhere. Tried the Desktop Manager as well but could not locate. I hope you understand what the issue is not and can help me. Thanks again from your previous response.

Thanks. Needed to know if we could manage a way of doing so through the BB itself.
No issues. Used your note andfound the folder and was able to access the "lost" folder. Much appreciated.

To unhide without using a computer, try this.
Main Menu > Media > (highlight pictures) > press Blackberry button > Explore > Media Card > Blackberry > pictures > press Blackberry button > show hidden
In short, navigate to the folder where you hid the folder/file and press the Blackberry button and choose show hidden. you'll then see the hidden item in the list as a semi-transparent item. Highlight the item > press the Blackberry button > Properties > uncheck "Hidden". You can then go back and access the file as you normally would.

Just a quick question as i have followed your links to unhide folders, items. I have mangaed to hide all my pictures, music, videos and i am trying to unhide the items and folders. However i have followed every step up until unselecting hidden with the tick. It appears in a transparent form.
Hope you can help. The problem occured when i tried to back up my contacts on the desktop manager.
