Finding hidden Windows folders

For all of us who have been driven batty by: hidden Windows folders; by circuitous, arcane routes to installing software; or by hidden folders where we need to store a piece of kit to make an add-on work and stymied by not being able to find it; then this little shortcut should help! 

Simply go to the Windows search box (beside the start button, as per the illustration accompanying this post), and key in:

%APPDATA%

Those pesky hidden personalised folder options will appear. Keying return will open the Windows Explorer folder. 

That enables us to find whatever the software folder it is we are looking for. So easy, yet so hard to find when you need to.

Not any more though: we have it right here :-)
