Ubuntu – Hidden files won’t stay hidden in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


Whenever I open my files, my hidden files show up. I can hide them but when I open up my files again, they're showing again. How do I make the hidden files invisible permanently?

Best Answer

You have set the option Show hidden and backup files in the Edit -> Prefererences. Just clear the checkbox and the hidden files will stay hidden after you re-open the file manager.
