How to Show Hidden Files and Folders in Android

In this post, you’ll see the steps to show hidden files and folders in Android. Let’s start.

Method #1

Open the Files app.

Hit the three vertical dots at the top left.

Tap “Settings.”

Enable (to show) or disable (to hide) the “Show hidden files” option.

Method #2

Connect your Android device to the PC (I’m using Windows 10) via USB.

On your Android device, slide down from the top, and you’ll see a notification regarding USB.

Expand it and then tap it.

Select the “File Transfer” option.

That’s it.

Now, open File Explorer on your PC, and you’ll see the name of your Android device. Double-click on it.

You’ll see both your Android device’s storage (Internal and External). Click on the one you prefer.

That’s all. You can see the hidden files and folders of the storage you chose.
