Windows 7: Hidden Files & Folders How To Hide & View Only Select Few

Hidden Files & Folders How To Hide & View Only Select Few

Hi,

I often make use of explorers built in hide files and folders tool to hide non essentential or relevant files and folders for example in Program Files it can get over crowded and I like to only make visible my custom installed applications but also other places on my hard drive like in my personal files I sometimes keep a folder which I keep files I no longer want instead of deleting them just encase I later need them.

Is their a convenient way to permanently hide already hidden folders whilst still having 'show hidden files and folders' ticked or better yet a hotkey like 'H' (Hide) and 'S' (Show) which could easily flip between show hidden files and folders

thanks

Hello swiftkidd,

You might see if these context menu items may work for you for this.

Show - Hide Hidden Files - Add to Context Menu

and

File and Folder - Add "Hide" and "Unhide" to Context Menu

Hope this helps,
Shawn
