If you want to hide your folders this trick will teach you how. Best of all, you won’t have to install any software or edit the registry. While this trick will hide a folder from anyone looking at your computer it is by no mean secure – it doesn’t stop anyone from accessing the folder. So don’t use this method if you want to prevent access to a folder full of sensitive files. And by-the-way: this tip works in Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 – both 32bit and 64bit systems.
Let’s make an invisible folder!
Follow the Steps Below:
1. Create a New Folder .
2. Right-click on the folder, and click on “Properties” > “Customize” > Change icon and select icon as blank space.
There will be a white space in the “Icon” dialog, once you select it, it will turn blue. Your icon will not be blue, don’t worry.
3. Rename the folder and press Alt0160 simultaneously (Use the ALT from the keyboard and the Numeric Keypad for the numbers here).
4. You will see the folder name disappear and a blank space where the folder would be. Look below, you’ll see the first folder is missing. Well, it’s not really missing, it’s still there and you can access it – and so can anyone else. But, maybe since it’s invisible they won’t think it’s there!
