comment Show hidden files in some folders, and not in others
I don't think I ever actually checked it, in XP. The dialog where you set it is access through a dialog that provides an option of changing settings for a window or for all windows, and I just assumed.

Certainly it's possible, But it would require MS to recognize that they're doing things wrong and to change their code.

So, my choice is either to wait for MS to write a decent zip tool, or find a third-party tool. Anyone want to lay odds on how long it takes MS to figure out that they're doing it wrong?

That may be where the problem is. I don't ever want a .js file to execute, just because I double clicked on it, but I do want a .bat file to execute, when I click on it in a real folder, but I do not, when I click on a .bat in a .zip. More than that, though, I want to be able to choose which action I want to take, instead of being forced to the default.
