The easiest way is to do just that….or in other words…make it a “hidden” file. You can do the same with folders too (If you have a lot to hide:))
Save your file or folder somewhere, it can be in Documents, Desktoip or wherever. View it in File Explorer. Then simply RIGHT CLICK the file, and from the sub menu that pops up choose…Properties
There you will see a little checkbox that says HIDDEN…tick that box and click APPLY………..OMG!…..the file is hidden!
Don’t panic if it disappears…it just means you haven’t got “view hidden files” enabled. To turn it on and off view this page.
