Hello rartpsych,

When you attempt to enter your File Manager, you should be greeted with a popup box asking where you want to enter the file manager. This box has a couple of checkboxes at the bottom. One is entitled Show Hidden Files (dotfiles). Checking that box will allow all hidden files to be viewed.

If you do not see the popup box, this means at some point the second box was checked. It is entitled Skip this question, and always open this directory in the future when opening File Manager. In this case you will need to scroll to the bottom of the cpanel and look for a link named reset all interface settings. Click that to reset the box. This will also reset the order of the categories in the cpanel to the default order.

In looking at your cpanel, however, it appears you already have the ability to see hidden files as I can see dotfiles and dotfolders.

Best Regards,
Scott M
