Making folders invisible can be fun as well as an important work for many people who want other people to be unable to view the contents of their folder.

I know that you must be thinking of the normal hiding method which can be achieved easily by going to tools => folder options. But I am not talking about the normal hidden files & folders. I am talking about the advanced methods that can be very useful to you if you pay a thorough attention on this article & learn how to make folders invisible.

2. In the right click menu click properties.

3. Click the customize tab & click the Change Icon button.

4. Scroll a little bit to the right.

5. Now click in the blank white space to select it.

6. Now click OK two times (one on the "Change Icon" dialog box & one on the "Customize" dialog box).


Now you have successfully completed the course on making folders invisible. Now your folders should be invisible.
