Hidden Folders.

Postby jokersloose on Thu Mar 13, 2008 7:38 pm

Is it possible to create a folder and then make it hidden? Or to make it where it has a password.

Thanks,
James

Yeh, you just add a period to the front of the folder name.
just right the click the folder you wish and go to properties and then put a period in front of the folder name.
this should be universal no matter what your DE is
