Invisible folder

October 11, 2011

Long time ago was MS/DOS (many of the connected people coming today on this site never known this…) but for some programmers remember it is possible to create a directory (or even a filename) made of invisible characters (i.e. the ASCII Code 255). Quite easy.

I found the new way to do it …on Windows Vista! Now, the name of the folder becomes invisible but also the folder itself. A great way to create a (more or less) secret folder on your desktop!
