editor's review




Hidden Files Viewer is a small and portable application that you can use to view hidden files on your computer, as the name implies.

It includes simple settings that can be configured even by users with limited or no experience in software tools.

Since installation is not a requirement, you can drop the program files in a custom location on the hard disk and click the executable item to run.

What's more, Hidden Files Viewer does not add new entries to the Windows registry, and does not create extra files on the HDD without your knowledge, leaving it clean after removal.

Hidden Files Viewer's interface is made from a small and common window with a well-structured layout, where you can select a drive from the drop-down menu and choose a process to end between Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

In addition, you can make the frame stay on top of other windows, set Hidden Files Viewer to automatically run at system startup, as well as hide system files and create an Explorer shortcut.

By opening the context menu in the dialog box you can view the operating system name, install date, last boot time, key number, NET version, and other information.

The application includes a help file for less experienced users, has a good response time and runs on a low amount of CPU and RAM, so it does not slow down the overall performance of the PC.

No error dialogs were shown in our testing, and the app did not hang or crash. All in al, Hidden Files Viewer serves its purpose. Unfortunately, it has not been updated for a while.
