can't find saved files

I have a whole bunch of blend and png files that I created and have been working with in Blender, but when I go to the directory in any other program, I can’t see the files. I can’t seem to get to them any way except for in Blender.

someplace in your computers operating system " Windows ?? " there is an option to…

deselect " Hide unknown file types. " or " Hide file extensions " … Your computer is hiding the files…

I think.
