  • To be more specific, in my documents I show two files with titles like RTMO11441.$$$ that can not be hidden and any time I open a word file such as Letter a new Word file shows up when I close the document with the title -$etter.


    Under folder options I have do not show hidden files selected and have clicked apply and ok.


    Any suggestions?

    Thank You,

  • I have isolated the problem to the Documents folder. This is the only folder where I have the problem with hidden files. Should I rename this folder or copy and paste all documents to a new folder then delete the documents folder and then rename the new folder and call it Documents? I'm really not sure.
