The My Files app isn't working right. I no longer see the hidden and system files even though I have the setting enabled to show them.

I just saw a feature that I haven't seen before and the default setting is what is the cause. At the top is a "grouping" setting that defaults to Essentials. I needed to change this to All to then see all my files.

Yep, that confused me for a minute when I first used My Files.
