I'm not very good with computers, and I don't know what you're saying I should 
do to get to hidden folders.  I followed the instructions completely until I 
got to general tab.  I shift tabbed and found only okay and cancel.  You said 
to arrow.  I tried arrowing both up and down and left and right. I still just 
got okay and cancel.  I don't know how to get to hidden folders.  I'm sorry if 
this question sounds stupid.

  Hello: Why  do you  have to delete  them  often? Do they  do  something  to 
your  hard drive?

    Marcus,

    Even though you carbon copied this list, I have not seen any response to 
your question, so I will make an attempt just in case you are still waiting.

    I run on an XP box, and this is what I did to show the hidden files.
    Go to Control Panel.
    go to Folder Options.
    You start on the General tab.  Shift tab and arrow to the View tab.
    On that page is a treeview that includes a line whether or not to display 
hidden files.  Change it as needed.
      Go to the OK and press enter.

      I find that temporary Word files accumulate, so it is a good idea to 
delete those periodically.

      Hope that helps.

      Wayne

      Hi all,

      When checking the number of files I have in a folder on my C drive, I got 
this message:
      87 items, plus one hidden

      How do I find out what the hidden item is?

      Marcus
