HOW TO HIDE A FOLDER ON COMPUTER 

Do you want to make a password protect folder??

Do you want to make it invisible??

So that it remains unnoticed by the normal users??

 

Well here is a way to do that. In this section I will show you how to make a password protected folder in Windows XP, Vista without using any additional software. Following is the step by step procedure to create a password protected folder.

 

STEP-1: Create a new folder (Right-click -> New -> Folder) and give it any name of your choice. For instance you name it as HME.

 

STEP-2:  Now place all the important files, documents or any other folder in this folder that you want to password protect.

 

STEP-3: Now Right-click on this folder (HME) and select the option Send To -> Compressed (zipped) Folder.

 

STEP-4: Now a new compressed zipped folder gets created next to folder (HME) with the same name.

 

STEP-5: Double-click on this compressed zipped folder and you should see your original folder (HME) there.

 

STEP-6: Now go to the File menu and select the option Add a password. ie: File -> Add a password

 

You will get small pop up window here. You can set your desired password. Once the password is set, It will ask for the password every time it is opened. Thus you have now created the password protected folder.

 

HOW TO MAKE IT INVISIBLE

STEP-1: Right-click on this password protected folder and click on Properties.

 

STEP-2: At the bottom select the option Hidden and press OK. Now your folder gets invisible.

 

STEP-3: In order to unhide this folder go to

My Computer Ė >Tools -> Folder options. Switch to View tab, scroll down and under Hidden files and folders youíll see the following two options

  • Do not show hidden files and folders

  • Show hidden files and folders

Here you select the second option and press OK. Now the invisible folder becomes visible in itís location. To access it you need the password. To make it invisible again repeat STEP-1 through STEP-3 and select the first option and click OK.

Now the folder becomes invisible once again.
