    Hi there guys,

    I was recently transferring some videos to my phone recently and when i opened them up on the phone, a few were missing. So I did some searching and found that the missing videos were under a hidden folder on my PC. And I had enabled view hidden items on my PC, but when it got transferred to the Phone, the hidden attribute of the file was also moved to it. This means that we could hide Music, Videos, Pictures or whatever we want from the phone by connecting it to a PC, opening up the device folders, right click on the required file or folder and click properties. then at the bottom of the new window that opens up, tick the hidden option and voila! that item is now hidden on the phone. ( Make sure you have view hidden folders enabled on ur pc under folder options) And you can unhide it back again by right clicking > props> and unticking the hidden option.

    Try it out and let me know.

    TO THE DEVS: Since WP 8.1 has more permissions, I was wondering if we could pick a file, and apply the hidden attribute via an app. Please share your thoughts on this.

    You cannot hide and cannot see hidden files in wp8.1. Despite the fact that 8.1 give more than 8.0 :)
