Today I have shared steps to hide unhide folders in windows. Basically we hide folders and files for storing private messages with an intent to keep it safe and secret so they are not accessible by everyone. When we hide any folder, then all the sub folders and files inside this folder will automatically get hidden and become invisible. There are two methods to hide unhide folders in windows, you can use any one of the two according to your privacy issue.

Method to hide unhide folders in windows used by almost every one or normal windows users:

1. Open the windows explorer.
2. Go to organize menu, found at the top menu bar.
3. Navigate to the folder and search options, click on it.
4. A dialog window will open, go to the view option tab.
5. Check the radio option of “don’t show hidden folders, files and drives”.
6. In case to unhide, check the radio option of “show hidden folders, files and drives”.
