Because now a days mostly everyone knows How to show hidden folders in PC.
Learn How to deny all permissions of a folder.
Step 1: Open Windows Command Prompt.
Step 2: Change directory to target folder.
(If target folder is at Desktop, type cd Desktop)
Step 3: type cacls folder_name /e /p everyone:n
All permissions of that folder has been denied.
Here I am giving an example.
There is a folder in G: drive named “TEST”.
Open command prompt and type G: to change directory to G drive.
Now type cacls Personal /e /p everyone:n
You will get a command- processed dir: E:TEST
Now click on TEST folder.
We get a popup saying you don’t currently have permission to access this folder.
Now you can’t open this folder, can’t delete/copy/move/rename.
If you click on continue.
Now what? Surely your parents will click on close. (I assume they don’t know how to change permissions of a folder).
Step 4: How to gain permissions again.
This time type cacls Personal /e /p everyone:f
Now you have got all permissions of this folder. You can open this folder (when no one is at home :p)
