Unhide User Account
I have accidentally hidden my User Account.

It is still there as I can see if from inside my files, but I cannot see it
when I navigate to Users directory, it just shows "Public".

I accidentally hit Hidden on file properties thinking it would unhide
everything. I have gotten the file folders to unhide, but I cannot figure
out how to unhide the actual user.

Re: Unhide User Account

Probably you have mean user account folder hidden. The best way use any
external file manager for example popular Total Commander which let you
see everything independly from folders attributes and system settings.By
using TC without any problem you can change attributes for folder

Re: Unhide User Account

Hello SCP1,

If you have access to another administrator account , then this may
help you get the account unhidden.
