When you start using Windows 7, you’ll notice several changes, some of which you may or may not like. One of which is that system folders such as the Control Panel and Recycle Bin are no longer displayed in the Explorer pane.

There should be an image here!

If you prefer having these folders in sight, you can easily restore them to view. Simply click Tools, Folder Options, check “Show all folders,” and click OK. Now all your familiar System Folders are visible in Explorer.
