How to Create an "Invisible" Folder for Your, um, "Private" Files

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.
1. Right click where ever you want the invisible folder to be and select create a new folder.
2. Right Click on the folder and hit rename. Erase the name of the folder so there is nothing there.
3. 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
4. Now click on the nameless folder and right click. Select Properties.
5. Go to the Customize tab.
6. Find and press the Change Icon button. Scroll through the icons until you find one that has no image.
4. Hit OK and you have an invisible folder!
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.

1. 创建新的文件夹。
2. 按右键然后点击“ 更改名字”,删除文件名。
3. 如果你停止在这里电脑就会告诉你,你需要提供一个名字给文件夹。所以呢?当鼠标还活跃于名字栏里,按住“ALT” 同时在数字键盘区键入 0160 (切记NUM LOCK 要开着),然后放开“ALT”。
4. 接着点击没有名字的文件夹,按右键选择“Properties”。
5. 选择“Customize” 按钮
6. 选择“隐形图案”后,点击更换图案按钮。
7. 点击OK 后,你就有一个隐形文件夹。
