HI,

System is Windows 10, 64 bits, november 2015
TCC is version 19.02.39

Each time I start a debug session, all hidden files (not system) are made visible.

Any idea how to get rid of it?

H,
See picture below. I Use "Don't show hidden file, folders, or drives.
A session with BDEBUGGER switch that into "Show hidden files, folders, and drives.
This should not happen.

Indeed, when IDE starts,

Code:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Hidden
changes from 2 to 1. When IDE exits, it changes back. Using F5, you can see it in an Explorer window.

Even if you have the hidden Explorer setting, you see hidden files in IDE's File\Open dialog.

The IDE turns on "show extensions" and "show all objects" in the Windows shell, and resets them to their original values when it exits. This was requested by many users (and has behaved this way for 10+ years). You're the first user to request it be changed back -- you can submit a request to the feedback forum for an option to disable it.

OKAY: I was probably wrong: I see: the Advanced Options from TCMD affects the ...

ShowHiddenFiles=No

and NOT the ...

ShowSysFiles=No
ShowSuperHidden=No

... this was my problem - at least it seems so - I'll check it out and report here soon ...

EDIT: yes, I was confused with those different options! It works right! And yes, also here I need a restart of TCMD to see the effect in File Explorer from TCMD (nevertheless the option changes immediately)!

Aha..
It seems I am not as decent as expected. Hidden files remain visible, because sometimes, I just click the windows close icon [X].
But thanks to vefatica for the registry entry I was searching for. Now, if hidden remains visible, I just click al small batch with a reg add command.

Thanks
