Guide to access files on pendrive in cases where the files are not visible but only shortcuts are visible

First we stop pendrive to open itself (autorun), which is important since many virus pose themselves as autorun
Then we safely open the pendrive, select only those files that you approve to be safe and then delete all other suspicious files.
Process to stop the autorun of pendrive:
Start Button – Run – gpedit.msc
From the list in the left,
Open "Administrative Templates – Windows Components – Autoplay Policies"
From the right part of the window, open (double click)
Now select "Enabled" from the three option in the top left of the new pop-up window
Do the same for "Default behavior for Autorun"
"Control Panel/ Hardware and Sound/ Autoplay"
While opening your USB drive (PENDRIVE), its safer to open from the left list view part of "MY COMPUTER" window.
Now the important part, Process to make all files visible in pendrive:
Open "FOLDER AND SEARCH OPTIONS" from "ORGANIZE" in any window
Switch to "VIEW" tab
Select "SHOW HIDDEN FILES, FOLDERS AND DRIVES"
Unselect "HIDE PROTECTED OPERATING SYSTEM FILES (RECOMMENDED)"
Select "YES"
Then "APPLY" the changes and "OK".
Now you should be able to view all the original files and folders in your pendrive which were not available earlier.
Carefully delete all those shortcuts (NO DOUBLE CLICKING) and all those other stuffs from your pendrive than those that you recognize.
SHORTCUTS NEVER WORK ON THEIR OWN, SO ITS COMPLETELY SAFE TO DELETE THEM FROM PENDRIVE AS ITS MEANINGLESS TO BE ON A PENDRIVE.

DON’T WORRY ABOUT THOSE SLIGHTLY DIM FILES YOU CAN SEE EVERYWHERE, THEY'RE SYSTEM FILES THAT ARE VISIBLE SINCE WE DID THAT, AND THAT IS TOTALLY REVERSIBLE.
SIMPLY SELECT THE CHECKBOX OF "HIDE PROTECTED OPERATING SYSTEM FILES (RECOMMENDED)" WILL DO THE TRICK HERE, AND SET EVEYTHING BACK TO NORMAL.
SINCE THE VIRUS WOULD HIDE YOUR ORIGINAL FILES, THEY'RE NOT ONLY HIDDEN BUT ARE MADE AS "SYSTEM FILES" WHICH YOU CANNOT SIMPLY UNHIDE.
NOW TO UNHIDE YOUR HIDDEN FILES:
Press the "Windows button and R" at the same time and in the box type "CMD"
You're now in the "COMMAND PROMPT"
Now, First, type the "disk letter" and give colon (:)
Here, "disk letter" is the alphabet that's in the bracket next to the name of your pendrive, like the one there is as - drive C, drive D, drive E.
Second, type this exact phrase, "attrib -h -s \*.* /s /d" and then press "enter"
Depending on the files you have in your pendrive, the process can take a while.
