Well-structured and approachable appearance
The application features a straightforward and quite accessible user interface, functioning much like a file explorer that allows you to browse through your system and select the objects you want to work with.
The main window of the program displays an ‘Explorer’ window, while on the ‘Selected Path’ section, you can view the contents of a folder in more detail. Various filters enable you to choose the items that you wish to display.
Effortlessly show, hide, archive or compress files and directories
For starters, you need to locate the objects whose properties you need to change, browsing through your computer and selecting the node or drive in the ‘Explorer’ panel. The files that it comprises are then listed in a dedicated window.
You can learn various ‘Selected Path Statistics’, such as the number of items in it, the amount of ‘Hidden’, ‘Read Only’, ‘Compressed’ or ‘Normal’ files and folders.
Optionally, you can choose what ‘To Show’, either ‘Show Hiddens’ or ‘Show All’, while also being able to separate files from folders and display them according to their type.
Modifying an object’s properties can be done either by right-clicking it and select the preferred setting from the context menu, or you by using the ‘Change Selected Item’s Attribute’ or the ‘Change Marked Items’ Attribute’ functions, as the top edge of the window.
A simple file attribute changer
In short, MZ Check Hidden is a useful and effective tool which you can resort to whenever you need to alter files’ attributes, allowing you to hide or show them, as well as set them as ‘ReadOnly’, so no one other than you can modify their contents.
MZ Check Hidden is a simple and powerful application that allows you to hide or display any files or folders.
In order to maintain the security and protection of several critical files, your computer hides them from plain sight. Although you can change this anytime and set your computer to display hidden items, the process tends to take some time and it needs some computer knowledge to handle.
The application can help you bypass the regular process of changing the attribute of your files or folders from hidden to visible, allowing you to do this instantly. This can help you discover some files that are not normally visible, but show up when calculating the size of a folder, for instance.
