How to see & edit Windows PPC folder in Windows PC

We all can use an explorer program like Total Commander to see what's inside our PPC's. It's a pain in the ass if you want to copy/delete/paste a lot of stuff using TC to do it. Luckily during active sync you can browse the contents of your PPC but not your windows folder. One forum member from PPCgeeks has shown a simple 'trick' or tip to enable the Windows folder to be seen on Windows PC e.g. to delete/add some TF3D files etc. It's so simple, this is the way I used to hide my pr0n collection... heheh

1. Connect via active sync/WMDC
2. Open up My Computer or Windows Explorer
3. Goto folder options:

Win XP - Tools>Folder options, click on the View tab
Win Vista - Click Organise on top left hand corner>Folder & search options>click on the View tab

4. Make sure to click the radio button with Show hidden files and folders.
5. Next remove the checkmark for Hide protected operating system files (recommended)
6. You will get a dialog box with a warning, click yes, then OK
7. Go back to your device on my computer, you should now see the windows folder
