  1. Temporarily hide a folder


    I have some photos on an external drive that I sometimes want to access from the Photos app, but I sometimes want to hide when I'm working in the Photos app.


    I know I can remove the folder from the app, then add it back, but my recollection is that when adding it back, it takes awhile to re-populate.


    Is there any way to temporarily exclude a particular folder from showing up?

    :)

  2. Hide or Show User Profile's Personal Folders in Navigation Pane


    Hello Brink and thank you. This website is a very helpful resource. Temporarily hide a folder :)

    Your suggested answer will hide the User Profile folder in the Navigation Pane.

    Instead, this scenario involves not hiding the User Profile folder but hiding specific Personal Folders in the Navigation Pane that are marked "Hidden" in the Files/Folders Listing Area.

    My suspicion is that there are more "PinToNamespace" registry entries for me to toggle the DWORD value.

    Temporarily hide a folder

    Locking/Hiding Folders.

    Hi,
    I'm just looking for another program that would let me hide/lock some of the folders on my computer. Of course, easy to use and doesnt effect my computer in anyway.

    I am using "Folder Lock" at the moment, but it is causing some trouble with blue screens popping up randomly (the windrvNT.Sys). I did a little research and was told that I either need to uninstall Folder Lock or rename the windrvNT.sys file, but it's such a pain; so thats why I'm here looking for a better program to lock/hide my folders/files.

    *Note: I'm looking for a "program", not a trick *Eek! Temporarily hide a folder :eek: .
    Thanks in Advance~
