right click go to properties and tick the hidden box it shouldn't show up in search. Then if you want to access it go to the run command by pressing the windows key + R you will be able to access it from there easy by typing the exact folder location like C:\Users\name\Documents\Locker (or were ever it is located) and click ok but if anyone else opens the run command it will still be typed
