How to make a folder completely hidden

Many times you might have tried to make a folder completely hidden so that nobody can see it. But I know you must have failed to do so. If you make a folder just hidden then anybody can see it by clicking on “Show hidden files and folders”. So that is of no use.

But there is an amazing trick to make a folder completely hidden. Nobody can see it by any means. Just do the following steps.
  • Make a folder in any of your drive. For example I am creating a folder named “ExampleFolder” in D: drive.
  • Now open command prompt.
  • Then type  attrib +s +h D:Example in command prompt and press enter.
  • Now go and see your folder, it would be completely hidden. If it is still visible then just press the refresh button or press f5 to refresh the window.
  • To view your folder again type  attrib -s -h D:Example in command prompt and press enter.
  • You can now hide any folder just by changing the path D:Example
In this method if you will go to “Folder and search options”->”view”->”Show hidden files, folders and drives”, then also your folder will not be visible. I think it will be really helpful to you. But remember one thing, never forget your folder name, otherwise it will remain invisible forever.
