Hiding your Folders : A different approach!!!

on Monday, October 5, 2009


Let me tell you a very different way to hide your folders...
The ordinary way is to set the folder's Hidden tribute. But how about changing your folder to Control Panel and back with a single click???

Suppose you have a folder named GoodFolder and you want to hide it.
1. Open notepad and type the following
ren GoodFolder GoodFolder.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

2. Save the file as a lock.bat file (In the SaveAs form change the Save as type to All Files).

3. Paste the lock.bat file to the same Folder or Directory where the GoodFolder is.

4. Double click lock.bat and notice the icon of GoodFolder changing to the Control Panel's icon. Now if you try to open GoodFolder; all you get is the Control Panel.

5. Now to unlock the folder, open notepad and type the following:-
ren GoodFolder.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} GoodFolder

6. Save the file as unlock.bat. Double click the unlock.bat and now you see your folder is back to its original position and you can view its contents.... Enjoy....
