Make a Super Hidden Folder in Windows Without any Extra Software

  • To do this we need to launch a command prompt, so press the Win + R key combination and type cmd then hit the enter button.
  • Now we are going to use the attrib command, so go ahead and type a command similar to the following (you’ll need to substitute the path to your own folder here).

             attrib +s +h “D:\movies\series\Friends”

You will need to replace the stuff in quotes to an absolute path of a folder or file on your system  that you want to make hidden.

  • Now if I go look for the Friends folder on my Desktop it is gone, even with explorer set to show hidden files and folders.
  • To unhide the file or folder you can run the same command, except this time use “-“ instead of the “+” signs. “attrib -s -h “D:\movies\series\Friends”
