How to hide files/folders?

If necessary file or folder haven’t added already to Hide List then do one of the following:

  • Drag-and-drop files or folders from "File and Folders Panel" to Hide List. Please, note that drag-and-dropping any folder will not automatically include all subfolders inside it. To add folders including subfolders select "Files"->"Add folders (with files)" menu option or click "Add items" toolbar button and select "Add folders (with files)".

  • Select File -> "Add items" menu option and choose one of the next items:

    • Add selected (default)

    • Add folders (with files)

    • Add mask

  • Select File -> "Add predefined" menu option and choose one of the next items:

    • My Documents

    • Cookies

    • Desktop content

    • Windows Favorites

    • Start menu

  • Click "Add items" button in Toolbar and select one of the next options:

    • Add selected (default)

    • Add folders (with files)

    • Add mask

  • Click "Add predefined" button in Toolbar and select one of the next options:

    • My Documents

    • Cookies

    • Desktop content

    • Windows Favorites

    • Start menu

  • Type in "Add quick mask" textbox at Toolbar if you would like to add a mask

Once any file/folder/mask is added to Hide List, it automatically becomes hidden.

Please, note that you cannot add files/folders that are critical to system (Windows folder, Hide My Folder etc.)
