Create an Invisible Folder!!!

Post by D.K. on Fri Jun 19, 2009 1:18 pm

Perfect for hiding files you dont want other people to see. Laughing

1. Create a new folder.
2. Right Click and click rename.
3. Press Alt and 160. You must press the numbers on the number pad. Note: Keep the Alt button down while pressing the numbers.
4. Now it should come up with a blank space where the name usually goes.
5. Right Click the folder again and click Properties.
6. Click the Customize tab and then the Change Icon button.
7. Go to around the middle and there should be some blank spaces.
8. Select one of them and then press OK then Apply then OK again.
9. You should now end up with a folder that is invisible!!!

P.S. You can find where the folder is by highlighting the files and then you should be able to see a blue box. This is your invisible file.

Check out folder lock, it is a great software program which creates a "Locker" which encrypts itself, it cannot be deleted, and is password protected, the program cannot be uninstalled unless you have the password, therefore your files are 100% safe... look it up!
