You ever have a folder on your computer that you really dont want any one to find? You can make this folder  hidden but then you have to un-hide all the folders when ever you want to find it. So how can you make a  folder truly invisible? Follow these simple steps and your
unmentionables will stay that way.

  • Right-click where ever you want the invisible folder to  be and select create a new folder.
  • Right-Click on the folder and hit rename. Erase the  name of the folder so there is nothing there.
  • If you try to stop here windows will tell you that you  need to provide a name. So to get around this… with  the name field still active hold down ALT and press  0160 on the number pad (make sure Num Lock is on), release alt  You should now have a blank name with nothing but a folder next to it
  • Now click on the nameless folder and right-click. Select Properties.


  •   Go to the Customize tab.


  • Find and press the Change Icon  button. Scroll  through the icons until you find one  that has no image.


  • Hit OK and you  have an invisible  folder!wink

With the invisible  folder you can hide what ever undesirables you have. Be it video games at work, pictures of your family or anything else you can think of “wink”.
The folder will show up for a brief second if you put it on your desktop. For that reason it might be smart to place it inside a folder or amongst a group of folders.
Happy Hiding! tongue
