In this article, I'll show you how to completely hide a folder with just one command line, which nobody can see even by selecting the “Show hidden files and folders” option. This is a very nice trick, with which you can completely hide a folder and even a geek cannot see it unless and until they know the name of your folder. Is not it fantastic?

Let's get started and see how to do it.

Step 1: - First go to the destination where the folder was saved.

Step 2: - Now, press the Shift key and while holding it down, right click.

Step 3: - An option will appear in the context menu that says, open command prompt window here.

4 phase: - Now, click on it and the Command Prompt window will open in this location.

Step 5: - Now, write a simple code provided below replacing the folder name with your folder name.

attrib +s +h "foldername"

Step 6: - Make an update. Your folder is gone. Nobody can show it.

Step 7: - To show the folder, just write the same code, replacing the - sign with the + sign.

attrib -s -h "foldername"

That is. It will be shown to you again.

Now, anyone who doesn't know the name of your folder won't be able to see or view it.
