here i like to know any different way that we can hide our files and folders.

However, if hidden files and folders are in fact showing up next to your normal ones, you or maybe even a program you've installed must have configured Windows 7 to show hidden files.


my going with files and folder option we check or uncheck the option to hide and unhidden the files and folders.



please guide me!!

A cool way to hide files is using VeraCrypt. Your encrypted archive will just be an extension-less file of your own naming. When you open it with the application it will mount as an additional drive.
