One of the things that I'm interested in it & important to me is SECURITY so today i will teach

to hide any kind of files & folders using Command Prompt

Let's hide some Files/Folders

1) Open Command Prompt

2) Type this command \

attrib "Your File/Folder path" +s +r +h

For Example \

A) To hide a file ( type the file extension )

attrib "G:\TEXT.txt" +s +r +h

B) To hide a folder

attrib "G:\New Folder" +s +r +h

your file/folder should be hidden now, even if you tried to change sitting of Folder Option

It wont work!!

Now How to Unhide It ?

retype the Command Again But this time change all the (+) signs with (-) sign like this

attrib "Your File/Folder path" -s -r -h

And that's it enjoy hiding files/Folders
