Hide Folder in Windows Xp Without Any Software

People like me are mostly trying to hide photos and documents of their girl friends or girl friends :D . There are different ways to secure or personalize your documents and photos from other.

2. Making an invisible folder also solves the problem. For that goto the location and create a new folder by right clicking on the window area of explorer and select new folder. Name the folder as, Keep ALT pressed on the keyboard and while ALT is pressed input 0160 and release ALT. This will create a blank ASCII character. Now here comes, how to make the folder invisible. Right click the folder and select properties. Click on the customize tab  and then click on Change Icon. Select the blank icon available in shell32.dll looking at the image below.
