No matter what kind of content you keep on your computer, you'll always find reasons to hide certain files and folders. Perhaps you have important documents and videos that you want to keep under wraps, or you simply want to prevent users from accidentally deleting certain files if you're sharing your PC with other people.
For whatever the reason it might be, on Windows 10, you can quickly hide a file or folder in two different ways, including using File Explorer or using the attrib command using Command Prompt.

Is there anything like Privacy Suite Pro? Going though commandline is all fine and dandy, but I would like an easier and faster way to hide AND access my... Serous Business documents, videos, and pictures while being assured they are hidden and won't be assimilated into anything as horrifying as the desktop slideshow or quick access. Ideally with being able to play the videos and documents such as PDFs right in the app and being able to view a slideshow of the Serious Business photographs.
