DavidPostill's answer is great, but may confuse newcomers a little. I'll try to rephrase. % is not a reserved character. It is an character with special meaning to the command shell (aka cmd.exe and command.com) The difference is: you cannot use reserved characters at all (but see below) you may be able to use special and escape characters - just not ...

Windows 10 collects information about you in countless ways and Microsoft is very far from being transparent about it. So I don't recommend you upgrade either.

I have reasons to think this is not possible – except for directory junction workaround provided in the other answer. You are focusing on Explorer toolbar functionality which is here for mainly for convenience of ordinary users. For them, showing hidden folders just makes no sense (or can be even dangerous). No wonder this wasn't made configurable. Advanced ...
