Sometimes you may want some privacy especially when you are sharing a computer with friends or family members. You have some files you want to keep secret so no other eye can see it but you are now faced with the problem of where to hide it, today I am going to teach you how you can create an invisible folder in your computer so no one will even know its there.
Now lets get started with how to create an invisible folder in Windows 7.
How to create an invisible folder:
Create a new folder on your desktop but right clicking on your desktop and choose “New folder”
Right click on the new folder earlier created to rename it, choose rename from the menu
Delete the default new folder and type in 0160 while holding down the “Alt” button on your keyboard. Not if you laptop does not have the number keys, you may have to activate your number lock (fn + Num Lk) key on your computer. When you activate it the 0160 should be the “mjom” keys on your laptop and hit enter on completion.
Right click on the folder and choose properties, choose the customize button and under the folder icon, choose change icon.
You may need to scroll to the right a couple of times till you see a place that looked like the marked portion on the image below.
Choose any of the invisible folders and click apply and then ok. You will then have a folder without a name on your desktop. You can copy/cut and hide this invisible folder anywhere and be rest assured no one will find it.
You have just made a folder invisible and can hide all your personal files in it.

This will surely be useful. I use multiple folders to hide my personal files so I create tens and thousands of them in one folder each one having a similar number of folders inside them. They are numbered 1-10 so I have to create a code to find what I am looking for. This method you showed though will be much simpler and easier to use. Thanks for sharing!
