How To Hide Folders On Your Computer

Hello people,
today we are going to see how you can hide your folders from curious eyes.

First, right click on a folder (or icon) and select "Properties".
Then check in the "Hidden" checkbox.
Click "Apply".

Click "Organize" and then click "Folder and Search Options"

Click on the "View" card and then check "Do not show hidden files and folders". Then, click "Apply".

You are done! To unhide the folder, just reverse the procedure!
NOTE: This is for VISTA, i presume that is more-less the same for WIN 7.
