Follow-up Comment #3, bug #49214 (project octave):

The question in comment #2 is hard to anwer. When you try to rename a file
(hidden nor not) where the filename starts with a "." , like ".octaverc", then
the Windows file manager will NOT let you do this, but throws an error message
"please do choose a proper filename". So the Windows file explorer doesn't
consider a filename starting with a dot as being alright. (Even though it is
an allowed filename for the used fat and ntfs file systems).
