Hide Files

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Help and Support' started by Unregistered, Feb 26, 2007.

  1. I need to hide movies and pictures from my wife on my Vista Home premium (I'm sure you can guess what files). When I put them as hidden they still pop up on the search menue is there a way to make them totally hidden like on XP?

    Try using command prompt. It really works well.
    Open Command prompt and type in as the following example.

    attrib +h c:\autoexec.bat
    This command will hide your autoexec.bat file so a standard user browsing your hard disk drive would not be able to see the file.
    To make the file unhidden use -h instead of the +h so the line would look like the below example.
    attrib -h c:\autoexec.bat
