I don't mean to necropost, but does anyone know a way to force this invisible folder to the end of the list under it's root folder? Right now, it creates a space in the folder structure.
to make a secret folder just make a new folder delete its name then hold down alt thn press 0160 on the num pad then change icon to a blank space and its invisible

This might stop your kid system from accessing your files (If she doesn't look to hard), but not anyone else.
Also, `security through obscurity' is almost always a bad idea.
If you want to protect a few files, encrypt them, you can easily do this by creating a 7-zip archive for example (Which uses AES-256 IIRC), which is just as easy as the above method.
There are many, many, specialized tools out there, including free ones.

Very good point.
The reason that it does not work for some people is because the are putting a file called target in the folder instead of target.lnk. This isnít a problem for most people since shortcut files usually hide their LNK extension even if you have donít-hide-extensions checked (it takes an extra step to reveal a few specialextensions). This means that most people will just be changing the filename and the extension remains LNK, but if you rename at the command prompt, then you can drop the extension. This is why it didnít work for me the first time; hence the computer-does-not-recognize-it icon as mentioned above.
