Is there anyway to hide a single file without hiding all files?

Who do you want to hide it from?

 

You can right click a file, select Properties, check the Hidden box on the General tab and press OK.

Try this....Click the start orb > documents > organize (top left) > folder and search options > view (top center).

Under 'files and folders' put a check next to 'hide protected operating system files'. Desktop.ini should not be visable now.

Ah that one is easy, to just hide those ini files go into the view tab and check the box that says hide protected operating system files. This will get rid of the .ini files. & keep everything else viewable.

Then I believe you won't be able to do what you want.  Most of this is due to the fact that hiding the file so you can't see it would also make it so you can't use it.

Ok, I'm sure the other users won't end up deleting the desktop.ini file.
