Specs: Windows XP
I want to see and use My Recent Documents in Documents and Settings/Owner. To see My Recent Documents, I have to go to Folder Options/View/Show hidden folders and files. How can I Show hidden folders and files only in the Owner directory and nowhere else? Thanks.

You can't. The view is a global setting.

A better question to ask is why are your files/folders hidden?
Are you not logging in under Owner?

This is what Windows HELP says about Owner Accounts ---
You might see an account with the name "Owner" when you first log on. The owner account, with computer administrator privileges, is created during installation if no user accounts are set up at that time. You can rename this account with a user's name.

I presume that if you rename that Owner Account, you may get what you want.
