    Hello freind now i tell U aboutto Hide folder without any software,

    Guys, as you can guess with this trick you can make your folders invisible without using any sophisticated software. This is a very unusual & easy trick to make your private folders invisible to others.

    A folder contains two parts;
    an icon
    a name.

    So to make the folder invisible you will have to make both the icon & the name invisible.
    Making The Name Invisible:
    Select the folder which you want to make invisible. Press F2 key then type ALT+0160 and hit enter key. You will notice that the name of the folder has become invisible. See the snapshot below.

    Making The Icon Invisible:
    Right click on the folder whose name you made invisible. Go to Properties, then go to the Customize tab. Then click on the Change Icon button. Select any blank icon there. Remember there will be many blank icons (see snapshot). Just choose any one. Click OK.

    Your folder is now invisible! Now only you know where the folder is located.

    Thanking You!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for watching and i more happy when U do this.....

    Hey guys. A lot of times it happens that the files and folders in a usb disk get hidden due to a virus infection and a shortcut gets created:mad:. A simple solution to get the files and folders visible.;)

    - open command prompt. start->run->cmd or just press win key+r and type cmd.
    - then type attrib -h -s -r /s /d i:\*.* (replace i with the drive letter of the usb disk in your computer) and just press enter.
    Them open the usb disk and you will see a hidden folder visible without a folder name and it will have all your files and folders.. :D:D:happy:
