In Linux you can toggle the viewing of hidden files by pressing Ctrl+H. This doesn't happen in Windows where you have to take a small trip through the explorer menus and options to toggle this setting, accept the changes, se your hidden files and then go through the same trip to hide them again. Ctr+H comes to fill in this feature. Copy it to any folder and run it once. It will ask you if you want to register it so that it starts up with your system. After that it will popup a message over your clock telling you it's running. Its tray icon will soon dissapear but Ctrl+H is still running. Then you will be able to show or hide hidden files by pressing Ctrl+H just like on Linux.
