Hi! Ever Wondered how to hide a FOLDER without any software, and in an efficient way...
Following will help you in making your folder to behave as a control panel.. and it will also  be super hidden..
Try it OUT!

 steps:

1. Go to the folder, you want to hide.

2. Create a text document in it by notepad.

3. Enter this in the file--- [.ShellClassInfo] CLSID={21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

4. Now save this file as
desktop.ini
, remember to change the extension, it should be a .ini file.

 5. So now you have your folder with its contents and this file in it.

6. Open Command prompt, can be done by start-->run, type "cmd" and then enter.

 7. Write this command: attrib +s +h +r complete_path
       example attrib +s +h +r c:\New\Folder1

8. And yes, its done. Your folder is super hidden, and even if you see it, it would behave as a control panel.

::: ::: 9. to unlock it now, replace the "+" signs with "-" in the command.

  NOTE: you can make your folder a recycle bin or so.. just change the shell extension it from the desktop.ini file. For recycle bin :{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
