    I have accidentally hidden my User Account.

    It is still there as I can see if from inside my files, but I cannot see it
    when I navigate to Users directory, it just shows "Public".

    I accidentally hit Hidden on file properties thinking it would unhide
    everything. I have gotten the file folders to unhide, but I cannot figure
    out how to unhide the actual user.

    Help

    Probably you have mean user account folder hidden. The best way use an
    external file manager for example popular Total Commander which let yo
    see everything independly from folders attributes and system settings.B
    using TC without any problem you can change attributes for folde
