1.)Create ‘con’ folder on desktop :

+ Can you create ‘con‘ folder on desktop or in any part of your hard disk..
+ Okay then create it in your hard disk and show.
+ Ha...not succeded a ?
+ Hmm...the name ‘con’ is the reserved name
+ Which no body can use it
+ And even there are so many names which we cant create ,they are:
1.) CON---[console]
2.) PRN---[printer]
3.) NUL--- [nul1]
4.) COM1 TO COM9---[serial communicaton ports]
5.) LPT1 TO LPT9---[line printer ports]

+ So we cant use them
+ But by knowing this we can create
+ But not the exact con folder,i am just adding the ASCII code after that name which cannot be visible
+ Okay ..how to make that is ...
+ Create a new folder by right click on desktop
+ Rename it as a con and press 'ALT+0160'
+ Please remember that the numbers should be pressed from num pad only.
+ Here the key ALT0160 is the ascii code of the character ' ' which cannot be visible
+ Then hurry up create the folder...
+ There is an other trick to create this folder ,but that is by using MS DOS .But the draw back is that if u create that folder than its impossible to delete the folder. so, Im not writing here

2.)Make your folders private:

+Double-click the drive where Windows is installed (usually drive (C, unless you have more than one drive on your computer).

+If the contents of the drive are hidden, under System Tasks, click Show the contents of this drive.

+Double-click the Documents and Settings folder.

+Double-click your user folder.

+Right-click any folder in your user profile, and then click Properties.

+On the Sharing tab, select the Make this folder private so that only I have access to it check box.


+To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer.

+This option is only available for folders included in your user profile. Folders in your user profile include My Documents and its subfolders, Desktop, Start Menu, Cookies, and Favorites. If you do not make these folders private, they are available to everyone who uses your computer.

+When you make a folder private, all of its subfolders are private as well. For example, when you make My Documents private, you also make My Music and My Pictures private. When you share a folder, you also share all of its subfolders unless you make them private.

+You cannot make your folders private if your drive is not formatted as NTFS

9.)Make your folders Hidden , And unsearchable w/o using any software:

Hey guyz...
You already know that File/Folder can be eaisly hidden by Right clicking on that ,and Ticking hidden Check Box and again clicking on OK .....

BUT, by doing that your File/Folder can be easily find by Showing hidden files and folders in folder options or even by searching technique....

BUT here I've a cool trick

which cannot be found either by searching or by any other way....interesting then follow these steps :

First create the folder which you want to make private Ex: foo and is created in
D:\ drive..
now open CMD prompt and type D: then you can go to D drive and now type

attrib +h +s foo "foo is the folder which you have created"

and see your folder will be hidden .....

and if you want to access you folder again

just open CMD prompt again and in D drive type: attrib -h -s foo

and your folder will be visible again.....WOW that's it....
