Advanced users may want ability to view "all hidden" files in their directory.
While most of these are critical system files, there are a few,
which can be manually edited by "Advanced Users." This is done
by inserting an entry into the "File Masking" feature in the client.

Unmasking Hidden Files:
1. Open the WSFTP account manager
2. Highlight your account
3. Select "Properties"
4. Select the "Startup" tab
5. In the "Remote File Mask" window, enter -a

This enables one to see the .htaccess files which otherwise may be hidden.
