How to Hide Files With Notepad

Introduction: How to Hide Files With Notepad

Hi guys!

I made this simple program with notepad to make you're files invisible.

It works with paths, for example:


You just copy the path of youre file, and paste it in the program.

NOTE: Maybe you have to unblock the program.


Version 1.0.4 released! Added a nice color and fixed bug in the main menu.


Version 1.0.4 >

Version 1.0.0 >

Step 1: How It Works!

1. Download the program using the drop box link.

2. Maybe the program must be unblocked, because I cant register me as a known publisher.

3. Double click the program. Maybe you must run it as a administrator.

4. In the menu, choose a option (1, 2, or 3) followed by enter.

5. If you want to hide a file, chose hide and type/copy the path of a file in the program. (example: %appdata%\private).

6. Press enter. you're file is hided now. If the file not exist you will get a error.

7. repeat the steps for unhiding files.

    Windows software developer's coding text box.. Or download their Microsoft Visual. Notepad is ALWAYS on windows computers when you buy them... If you have a mac or something, search for something to download for that. It is only for PC.. I was trained in software with basic notepad... Now I code with Microsoft Visual Code.. Or REGULAR NOTEPAD IS IN DEFAULT WINDOWS PC COMPUTERS.. Check out my profile and email me at for more help...
