simple way of hiding your folders without using any special program.
Here’s how you do it:
Note: you must use the numpad numbers, otherwise it won’t work
1) Create a new folder anywhere on your hard drive.
2) When naming the folder, hold down “Alt” and press “0160”. This will make the folder have no name or characters. Remember to use the number pad. You cannot simply press the Spacebar because the folder will not stay blank!
3) When your finished naming the folder, right-click the folder and go to “Properties” and go to the “Customize” tab.
4) Select “Change Icon” and scroll along until you find a few blank spaces (which are icons). Select anyone of those for your folders icon and Apply the changes.
