How to create a folder without name in Windows Vista and Windows 7


Step 1: First of all create a New Folder

Step 2: Right Click on the folder and select ‘Rename’

Step 3: Hold the ‘Alt’ key and type in 0160. Press Enter. You’ll notice that the folder will have no name.

Step 4: The final step is to change the icon in order to make it invisible.

Step 5: Right click on the folder and go to Properties > Customize > Change the icon > Select the blank one (there are about three of them, choose any one) > OK

How to delete that folder :

The folder which you have just creates has a name, even if you can’t see it.

Step 1: Open a Command Prompt (Start > Run > cmd)

Step 2: At the prompt, type: dir /x

That should show you all the files and folders in that directory.

The one that you named (alt + 0160) should appear with no name in the normal list of files, but the column before that should show it as “0A00~1″. That is the Short File Name, also known as the SFN or the 8.3 filename.

Step 3: Now use RD command to remove that folder: rd 0a00~1
