Some time ago I made hidden files show up, and now I forgot how to make them not show up. How do I make hidden files not show up on the desktop or during file system browsing?

You open up the Folder Options dialog box (open the Start menu, type "Folder options" without quotes, and hit Enter).

Then, under the View tab, in the list of options, you'll find a radio button next to "Don't show hidden files, folders, or drives". Select that, and click OK.
