Lock/Hide your folders – Fool windowsXP

with one comment


Here is the trick to lock a folder. Suppose there is folder name Games in drive D. (D:\Games). Make a batch file on Drive D: and write the following code in it

ren games games.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

save it as “loc.bat” or what ever you name like. Now, run it (double click it) and you’ll see the folder Games has been changed to “Control Panel” icon. Now if you double click on it, it will open control panel for you, won’t open the actual folder’s contents.

Nice na. Now you want to convert your folder back to games. Make another batch file named “key.bat” and write the following code in it


ren games.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} games

Your “control panel” iconed games folder will be renamed to “games” and you’ll be able to access it.


I guess you people have enough idea what trick is used. Here is some more KEYS that you can use to fool around our loveable WINXP
