Hinding folders with dos


Hinding folders with dos using the attrib command

It is similar to this process,The only difference is that this we are doing in CUI {or dos mode}
it is simple.

Starting dos
1. Start
2.Run
3.Type "cmd" and press enter

Inside dos

Suppose you have a folder name techgeektricks in G drive than here is what you should do.
type G: {and press enter} {or instead of G type the drive name in which you have the folder to hidden}
then type attrib +h techgeektricks  {note techgeektricks is the name of the folder if you want to hide files then type .}

Your file or folder is hidden now to remove the hidding property.

type attrib -h techgeektricks


For help type attrib/?
