You can create a batch script (call it hide.bat for instance) in the folder and put in the batch file:

attrib +h *.dop
Then just run the batch file when you want to hide the files. If you need step by step instructions for how to create a batch file:
  • Open the folder in question
  • Click on Organize (upper left corner of the window under the back and forward buttons)
  • Folder and search options
  • View tab
  • uncheck hide extensions for know files types
  • click OK
  • Right click in an empty area of the folder (careful not to right click on a file)
  • Click New -> Text Document
  • Delete all the text in the text document name including the .txt part
  • Name the file hide.bat
  • Right click hide.bat and click Edit
  • Type in the command I gave above for attrib +h *.dop
  • Save, and exit.
  • That's it; you can hide extensions to known file types again if you want.
