How to Hide Folders in Windows, new trick!

Today I will tell you how to hide your private folders in Windows using a unique new technique. There are many software that can do this job but unless you buy their licensed version, you can’t make use of their full functionality.

The tip I am sharing is completely new and different and will make sure the folder does not even show up in Windows search.

Before you start make sure you know a little about DOS or Command Prompt.

  1. Go to C drive and make a new folder. For example, like I made a folder named etc85.

  2. Now make sure to put all your private files and content inside this folder and then open Command Prompt.
  3. Navigate to C drive using the cd.. command.
  4. Type in the command attrib +s +h +r etc85 and hit enter.

Thats it! your folder is now completely hidden from all users in all possible ways.

To unhide simply navigate to the same location in Command Prompt and type in attrib -s -h -r etc85. With this technique, no one can find your folder. Whether any one searches, does system restore or anything. Your folder is in complete privacy.

If you like this technique or have any difficulty executing it, just leave a comment.

Note: Make sure your own folder name in the command while executing it. Enjoy!
