In this article, i will show you how to completely hide a folder with a single command line, which no one can see even by checking the option “Show hidden files and folder”. This is a very beautiful trick, with which you can hide a folder completely and even a geek can not see it unless and until he knows your folder name. Isn’t it mind blowing.
Lets start and see how to do it.
Step 1: – First reach to the destination where the folder is kept.
Step 2: – Now, press shift key and while keeping it pressed, do a right click.
Step 3: – An option will appear in the context menu saying, open command prompt window here.
Step 4: – Now, click on it and command prompt window will open at this location.
Step 5: – Now, write a simple code given below replacing foldername with the name of your folder.
attrib +s +h "foldername"
Step 6: – Do a refresh. Your folder is gone. Now , no one can unhide it.
Step 7: – To unhide the folder, just write the same code , just replacing – sign with + sign.
attrib -s -h "foldername"
Thats it. It will be shown again to you.
Now, one who do not know your folder name can not view it or unhide it.
