Description

Hifito is a small utility for Windows, which allows to quickly toggle the "Show hidden files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" Explorer settings. The utility is written in C using only the win32 API, so it's really fast and lightweight.

    Really useful tool, I just think it should be coupled in the Windows Explorer instead of being a standalone application.

    Thanks, now it works fine :) I tried to write something like this (under .NET or WSH) after using Linux, but failed with Explorer updating like in your previous version. How about hotkey option for show/hide it on tray and running parameters for direct switching?
