My 'Folder' is changed to 'File'

April 2, 2019 at 03:50:27
Specs: Windows 10
I cannot open my folder. the icon is now white square, not the normal file folder icon.

The file type is also changed to 'File' instead of 'FIle Folder'

There are 15 files in the folder. How do I recover this?

Note: I have tried ZAR, but nil joy.

Please help me :(

Likewise see f this info helps; albeit from 2015 and thus predates win-10?

So to confirm- initially you tried ZAR and nil joy (it didn't work)?

Then tried it again - following instructions in the link you include your #3 and it did work?

Just wishing to clarify for benefit of any others who may come across this post anon - via google or whatever...

Over the years Zar has come up trumps at odd times. In one case none of us believed the poster had a hope in hell but it worked for him.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
