Disable Hidden Files on AutoPilot / Find my Device without Admin Rights

New Contributor

Hi all, I am stuck with my settings for the AutoPilot client. It is about two things to which I could not google anything so far:


1.) On the client, the normal user (not admin) after installation hidden files and folders are displayed. Is there a way to disable this via a Powershell script or CSP (Custom Policy)?


Thanks for the help and have a nice 2021 together

Here is the reg path for it, you can push a simple ps script using Intune to change the value.



$path= ‘HKCU:\ Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced’
Set-itemproperty -path $path -Name ‘Hidden’ -Value 2

You can run the script with standard user privileges.

Hope this helps!
