If you wish to search for hidden files, please try the following search:

Please note: attrib:h will be slow as this information is not indexed by default.
To index attribute information:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Indexes tab on the left.
  • Check Index attributes.
  • Click OK.
With index attributes enabled, search for attrib:h will be instant.
