Would like a simple tray icon which when clicked would toggle the "show hidden files" and "show system files" settings (and do a refresh of the current window).  Something which could be loaded on startup.   Thanks!

Here's another topic here on DC, with a solution for this ;)

rox-filer has a button in its toolbar that toggles visibility of hidden files, but rox-filer is not readily available for windows. However, I think it might be more convenient to have this button directly in Windows Explorer, so you can quickly change the setting while you are actually active in that window.
