hey guys..is thr any way to create a folder having no name in win xp?????
First tel me why do u need a folder without a name???
Names are there to identify a folder contents,..
I presume u wanna hide stuff.. you can do a small registry hack to avoid showing folders u wish not to be visible to everyone..
Create a new folder. Try the ALT+255 combination during renaming folders.
U can make it i suppose... something to do with changing the name to <space> via <cmd>. Used to do it long time back. Bhool gaya. Searchin online. 'll tell if i get it. Mayb other's know.
But there used 2 b a method. No doubt.
ya... blueshift did it. I was tryin to do the same with Alt+32, the other <space> character code.
But i suppose, there is some problem with the method. I used to do it to prevent access to the folder. Can't remember the method though.
What you want to do koolbluez? That method will only rename the folders name to nothing.
ok folder created. Now how to delete ? Standard methods not working. right click delete, shift delte, nothing appears to work.
What? Which OS u use?
It works perfectly here.
Vista RTM ..
ok. I use WinXP.
Sorry can't help you.
How do you delet it in XP ?
delete the folder in cmd .
Alright I got it how to delete in Vista.
I was goin to say that some prob happens... u see, i did it sometime back.
Ok... but when i tried it on my Win XP SP2 it worked fine & I got it deleted. How come I didn't face ur prob. Maybe it's the SP2... jainshubhanyu?
Anyway, How didja do it?
DOS... rename the file & delete the renamed one. I suppose that'll work.
maybe he deleted in dos...cuz its possible that way
what command we need to delete a folder having no name??
well , i have no knowledge of that baby
thanx blueshift...u rock man.. i wz trying with alt+180..but that wasnt working...
do nybody also know the registry hack for the same?????
LOL, looks like he wanna hide that *private content* all guys have on HDD
1. Make a New Folder
2. Rename it and while renaming press ALT and then 255. It will leave a blank character.
3. Select the folder and change its icon to "blank" icon
4. Enjoy!! No need of *magic folders* tool
Separate names with a comma.
