I recently performed a reset on my PC. The Windows accessory snipping tool now saves files as hidden by default, no matter where I save them. This problem also occurs intermittently with Save As. Before the reset, the snipping tool did not hide saved files by default. I read that this problem occurs with McAfee antivirus software, but I use Windows Defender. Files are saved as unhidden if I bring them into Paint or Paint.net, make a change, and re-save them. I have set system files and folders to be visible. Still, how do I configure the snipping tool to save unhidden files by default?
