Make a Folder Compelety Invisible in Windows

Do you want a folder to be completely hidden?.In windows even if we make a folder properties hidden it will be shown when we use the option 'search for hidden files and folder' while searching a file.But here is a trick that really make the folder invisible.So here's how you do it.
  1. Right click the place where you want the folder to be created and select create a new folder.
  2. Right click the newly created folder and select rename.
  3. Now clear the file name.But windows tells you that you cant create a folder without a file name.
  4. So clear the file name, while the name field still active press and hold alt and press 0160 (Num lock must be on).
  5. Now you will have a folder without a file name.
  6. Right click the nameless folder and go to the properties and select the customize tab.
  7. Now select the change icon.
  8. Look for the icon that has no image. That is a blank one. Select it and press OK.
  9. That's it there's your invisible folder.
  10. I recommend not to put it on your desktop as it may show up for a second while starting windows.
  11. It will be good enough to put it with a group of folders.
  12. For an enhanced hiding you can also make its property hidden.

This is just old. All now knows about this and most importantly if you are wise you will be able to discover these kind of files.

1. First what you do is under View > check the status bar. So that windows shows the bar and within it there shows the number of folders/hidden folders in you current window (eg. My Computer). So basically you will know if there are extra things/file that you are not able to see at the moment. So you do a search or makes viewable the hidden files. If you do search then there will be an empty file within the search result. and BINGO!!!!!!!!!

Yes many may know it. But let me ask you one thing. No body could know in which directory we create the invisible folder. So even if they want to find it they should search each and every space in windows and no body will dare to do that! :) Thanks for your suggestion.
