Windows 7: Hiding certain file types?

Hiding certain file types?

Hi,
I was just wondering if it is possible to stop certain file types from appearing in windows explorer?

I'm using Sony Vegas which creates a .sfk file for every clip containing the waveform of any audio. The problem is it's making the folder full of 50+ clips too messy and I can't find the bits I need.
I would just hide the files but then if I add more clips to the folder and then Vegas creates another .sfk it's not hidden.

Thanks.

Hello Auroraah,

If you like, you could use the command to manually hide all .sfk files in the folder every so often.

ATTRIB +H "Full Path of Folder\*.sfk"

File and Folder - Hide or Unhide

Hope this helps,

Symbolic File Folder with Specified File Types?
I'm sure there's a way to do this, but it's out of my realm of digging in windows. What I need essentially is a Symbolic Folder that will scan a set directory and only return specific file types. For example, I have five folders with .jpgs, .psds, and .txt. What I would like is to create a...
