    Hide folder names?


    Is there any way to hide folder names? But I do mean hide the name, not hide the folder or replace the folder name with a blank character. Like the "hide file names" option but for folders instead

    :)

    Hide Folders may be causing Windows Defender to crash.

    Open "Uninstall or change a program" and look for a program called
    Hide Folders
    and uninstall it.

  3. Can't create an invisible folder

    Hi,

    If you want a folder in the Desktop that is not visible, you will have to hide that folder. To hide a folder, right click on the folder, in the "General' tab, check the box against' Hidden'. This will hide the folder and make it invisible. Hope this helps,
    let us know if you have any further queries.

    Hide folder names?

    Hi @Arkotan, welcome to tenforums.com! *Smile

    Depends where the folders are. I know there is software to hide folder names but only on the desktop.
    'Re-no-naming' many folders in one location would be a lot of work.
