Bug Description


state for now to see hidden files: buttons 'unlock full access' and 'show hidden files'. That's correct.
But if we click only 'show hidden files' (without 'unlock...') we don't see hidden content. That's is also correct, but it's misleading, because we don't see any warning/tip telling us that that option separately (without 'unlock full access') do nothing and we need to unlock full access to see them.

My proposal of solution: If we click 'show hidden files' there should appear box with something similar to

To see hidden files, you need to unlock full access.
Do you want to do that?

Or simply hide option 'show hidden files' until user will unlock full access.
