There's actually no such thing as a "hidden" file or folder in Linux. In Windows, files and folders are hidden by setting a file attribute on them, and is used to prevent novice users from viewing or modifying them. In Linux, a file or folder can be "hidden" from most shells and file managers by simply prefixing a "." in front of the name (.settings, for instance). A simple 'View > Show hidden files' or "ls -a" is all it takes to list them. The purpose is thus purely for cosmetic / organizational purposes.
