    Where I work we have two Mac's on our network for our designers to use. I am using Windows but I often need to see art files created on the Macs, these files are showing up as ._ files in the network folders. I dont really understand any of this stuff so please be patient but I need to figure out how I can view these files and all the information I can find is how to hide or delete them.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks a Million!

    I don't think you can view them how I think you want to view them.
    The files with the ._ prefix won't contain artwork. Those files typically
    contain filesystem metadata. Windows won't understand that as it's
    OS X specific.
