This makes it difficult to locate or identify the many files you need to work with in your MicroSurvey product.  See the steps below for directions in turning this setting off:


 

Windows 8 and 10:

Open File Explorer:

Switch to the View Ribbon

Check on:

  • File name extensions
  • Hidden Items

Select Tools | Folder Options:

Select View

Check on "View Hidden files, folders and drives"
